NEW YORK — ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips admits having an affair with an assistant at the cable network who taunted his wife with phone calls and a letter graphically describing their relationship, the New York Post reported Wednesday.
After 22-year-old production assistant Brooke Hundley was dropped by Phillips, she made repeated phone calls to his wife, Marni, saying “We both can’t have him,” the newspaper reported, citing a Wilton, Conn., police report.
“I have extreme concerns about the health and safety of my kids and myself,” Phillips said in a statement to police.
ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said: “We were aware of this and have already taken appropriate action. We have no further comment.”
The 46-year-old Phillips is a former general manager of the New York Mets. Phillips admitted having sex with a team employee, who sued for sexual harassment. That case was settled out of court.
In this latest incident, according to the cited police report, Phillips told police and his wife about the affair, which he said occurred this past summer. The newspaper also reported that Marni Phillips told police she had received “harassing phone calls and text messages” from a woman who claimed to have information about her husband.
Phillips is being sued for divorce by his wife, the mother of their four sons, the Post reported.
