MILWAUKEE (AP) -Hall of Fame relief pitcher Rollie Fingers made it back to Milwaukee for the Brewers' 1982 World Series reunion on Monday - and he didn't have to worry about being tracked down by the local revenue department.
Fingers, who was listed on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue's top 100 delinquent taxpayers in July 2006, says his tax issues have been resolved.
``That's all been taken care of,'' Fingers told The Associated Press. ``I've had more people try to tell me, 'You know, you owe 1.4 million dollars.' I said, 'No, I don't.' We got all that squared away.''
The state Department of Revenue had listed Roland G. Fingers of Las Vegas as owing about $1.4 million in income taxes, including $1.1 million in interest. But Fingers was removed from the state's delinquent list last month.
Documents filed in Dane County Circuit Court did not specify how his cases were settled, including whether Fingers paid and how much he might have paid.
Fingers said it took about a year to resolve the issue, and asserted that he did, in fact, pay taxes when he played in Milwaukee.
``I had to go all the way back to 1981 on my income taxes,'' said Fingers, still sporting a toned-down version of his trademark handlebar mustache. ``That's all been taken care of, and I did pay my taxes back then, so there's no problem. The revenue department's happy with me right now, so it's all been resolved.''
Fingers, who arrived in Milwaukee on Monday, said it was nice to see his former teammates.
``You want to know what guys are doing, where they're living, if they're still in baseball or not,'' Fingers said. ``It's been fun.''
Fingers, the American League's MVP and Cy Young Award winner in 1981, was injured late in the 1982 season and was unable to play in the playoffs. The Brewers lost the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games.
``I wish I would have been healthy,'' Fingers said. ``Whether or not I would have made a difference, I don't know. I would have liked to have had the opportunity.''
