Tennessee baseball player Evan Russell has left the door open to suing ESPN over the false claim he took PEDs.
Shockwaves were sent through the world of college baseball when ESPN broadcasters claimed live on air that Russell missed a game because he failed a test for PEDs.
The claim turned out to be completely false, and one of the broadcasters involved did end up apologizing and setting the record straight. However, Russell feels like the damage has already been done.
“You know, it’s always going to be a blemish just because it was out there on national television that people can make an argument, even if for some reason I end up playing, you know, 10, 15 years from now with some success,” Russell explained when talking about the false claim during an interview on “Tomi Lahren is Fearless.”
When talking about potential legal action against ESPN, he also added, “Me and my legal team are pursuing many options. In a sense it’s to prevent it from happening again.”
