Los Angeles Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway “aggressively pursued” several women who work in sports media and sent three of them inappropriate photos, according to a magazine report.

The Athletic reports the former Cleveland Indians pitching coach and New York Mets manager sent uninvited and sometimes unanswered messages via email, text or social media and asked one to send nude photos in return. He often commented on their appearance and on one occasion “thrust his crotch near the face of a reporter” while she interviewed him. Five women spoke to The Athletic on condition of anonymity. They indicated Callaway’s actions spanned at least five years and three teams.
