Picked Off

Fired for Sex  -

October 27th, 2009


What happens when a 22-year-old female production assistant puts herself in a scoring position? If you’re Steve Phillips, you whip out your bat and rush her mound. Phillips, a former baseball analyst for ESPN, got his walking papers from the network Sunday night after admitting his affair with Brooke Hundley, a gal just about nine points short of a ten and apparently a few innings short of a game. In spite of Hundley’s supposed ball control, this was some kind of sacrifice fly — the sacrifice being Phillips’ career, the fly being the one he should have left up.

Like a microwave to a stick of butter, this 1987 thriller about a one-night stand gone horribly wrong softened straying peckers immediately.



An eleven-year member of ESPN’s Baseball Tonight, Harold Reynolds was fired in 2006 for what he called a "misinterpreted hug" by a female intern at the network. Reynolds and ESPN settled out of court after he filed a $5M wrongful termination suit. Hugs… bad. Losing your mind on the set… no biggie.
