FOR­MER ALL-STAR DE­NIES CO­CAINE AL­LE­GA­TIONS » For­mer All-Star pitcher Este­ban Loaiza, who earned more than $43 mil­lion over 14 sea­sons, de­nied al­le­ga­tions Wed­nes­day that he is a co­caine dealer.

Loaiza, who be­came a celebrity in his na­tive Mex­ico, made his first ap­pear­ance in San Diego County Su­pe­rior Court in Chula Vista, Cal­i­for­nia, since his ar­rest last week. The 46-year-old re­tired ath­lete did not speak in court but did look at his fa­ther and other fam­ily mem­bers be­fore his de­fense at­tor­ney en­tered his not guilty plea.

Prose­cu­tors charged Loaiza, 46, with pos­ses­sion and trans­porta­tion for sale of more than 10 kilo­grams (22 pounds) of co­caine, a co­caine base or heroin, and using a false com­part­ment to smug­gle drugs.

The spec­i­fi­ca­tion of more than 10 kilo­grams could draw a stiffer penalty as could the al­le­ga­tion that the drugs were be­ing stored at a town­home he leased that was within a 1,000 feet (305 me­ters) of an el­e­men­tary school.
