(Philadelphia) -- Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels struck out trying to see last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and he's suing a London-based event promoter over it.

The former Philadelphia Phillies star filed the lawsuit in Philadelphia on Friday.

He alleges Cornucopia Events failed to get him and his wife into the 2015 New York City lingerie show even though he paid nearly $70,000 for three VIP packages.

The suit says the money was to cover a four-night stay in a luxury hotel, a limousine with champagne, access to exclusive restaurants and goodie bags.

It alleges Hamels and his party got none of the perks and were denied entry to the event.

Hamels is seeking $150,000 in damages for fraud and misrepresentation.

An email seeking comment from Cornucopia's managing director wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
