Today, the former star baseball player who played a key role in the New York Mets’ last World Series champion in 1986, is broke, with 19 lawsuits filed against him, $37 million in debts, $24.6 million in assets — mostly from two Lake Sherwood estates — and a $5,700 per month baseball pension. A divorce court last year ordered all his pension money go to his wife, Terri.
In July, Dykstra filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring, but a court-appointed trustee later determined he was incapable of fixing his financial problems so the matter was converted to a Chapter 7, allowing the court to seize his assets and sell them off to pay creditors....
For now, Dykstra isn’t generating any income, but his bookkeeper, Dorothy Van Kalsbeek, said a reality TV show is in the works.
“It’s not a puff of smoke, but it hasn’t gotten to the pilot stage yet,” said Van Kalsbeek, who is more of a friend these days since she isn’t being paid by Dykstra. “It’s very much in the development stage.”
