Fingering The MLB Pervert

Former Beverly Hill 90210 star Tiffany Amber Theissen appeared yesterday on a poor woman’s version of The View, claiming that she once received lewd photos from a baseball player asking her out.

He’s even more famous now, but he was somewhat famous then. [He] sent me a photo, a head shot at first, asking me out. And then I guess because I didn’t respond, he followed up with another sort of picture.

Let’s not bother questioning the validity of such claims and ask boring questions like how on earth the baseball player sent her such photos considering that few cell phones in the late nineties could take pictures let alone send them. And mailing or FAXing naken photos just doesn’t seem efficient or feasible. Instead, we should delve right in to some idle speculation on who the dirty pervert is.

No, you’re immature. Come on, it’s Friday afternoon. What do you want?

According to Wikipedia, Beverly Hills 90210′s original run was from October 4, 1990 – May 17, 2000, but Theissen was only on the show until 1998. Here is a list of baseball players who would’ve met the “famous at the time, but more famous now” criteria:

  • Johnny Damon
  • Jason Giambi
  • Derek Jeter
  • Chipper Jones
  • Jorge Posada
  • Edgar Renteria
  • Mariano Rivera
  • Alex Rodriguez

Of those players and during the time frame provided, only Giambi would’ve been playing regularly in California (for the Oakland A’s), where the television show was filmed and where both the baseball player and Theissen are originally from.

An intrastate romance! How quaint.
