The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1eQPovh) that Clark, who played for the Cardinals from 1985-87, issued a public retraction Monday night for his comments made about Pujols, a nine-time All-Star who played for the Cardinals from 2001-11 before signing a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels.

Pujols, who has vehemently denied using performance-enhancing drugs, sued Clark for defamation after Clark said on his show in August that Pujols used banned performance-enhancing drug.

Clark apologized in a statement and said he has ''no knowledge whatsoever'' that Pujols ever used used illegal or banned drugs.

Pujols says he's accepted Clark's retraction and apology and would resolve the lawsuit.
