Steve Phillips Fired Over Brooke Hundley Affair

by at . Comments

Less than a week after his affair with 22-year-old production assistant Brooke Hundley came to light, ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips has been fired.

ESPN made the announcement last night during the American League Championship Series, during which Phillips normally would have been in the studio.

"Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN," the network said.

"His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways."

Steve's rep issued a statement saying that Phillips "is voluntarily admitting himself to an in-patient treatment facility to address his personal issues."

The statement did not specify the nature of said issues, although we're gonna guess that the married father of four's parking lot sex sessions with Brooke Hundley, a certifiable nut job who went on to harass his family, were a factor.

Steve Phillips has proven himself a very stable, upstanding individual.

Phillips previously had taken a leave of absence after details emerged of his relationship with Brooke Hundley, whom he met at the All-Star Game in St. Louis.

Steve and his wife, Marni Phillips, issued statements to police describing harassing phone calls by Hundley after the relationship ended, and at least one frenzied visit by Hundley in person to their Wilton, Conn., home in August.

Brooke dropped off an insane letter to Marni detailing her affair with Steve, then is said to have stalked their teenage son on Facebook. Marni then called 911.

Steve Phillips, a former GM of the New York Mets, had risen steadily on ESPN's depth chart, joining Jon Miller and Joe Morgan in the game booth Sundays.

He admitted to extramarital affairs while with the Mets, as well.
