NEW YORK (CBS/AP) ESPN staffer Brooke Hundley remained "hopeful," according to her MySpace page, even as her former lover, baseball analyst Steve Phillips was fired by the network Sunday.

Phillips checked himself into "an inpatient treatment facility to address his personal issues," according to his representative, Steve Lefkowitz.

The extramarital affair became fuel for tabloids after Phillips' wife, Marni Phillips, filed a police report in Wilton, Conn.

In the report, Marni Phillips said that 22-year-old Hundley had sent her a letter graphically describing their relationship, even mentioning the former Mets' general manager's birthmarks.

Marni Phillips called police Aug. 19 when she came home to find Hundley in her driveway. "I knew instinctively that this was the woman Steve was involved with and I was terrified," she wrote in a statement to police.

Hundley also contacted Phillips' 16-year-old son through his Facebook account, according to the police report.

"This woman has clearly displayed erratic behavior and delusional tendencies," Steve Phillips said in a statement to police.

Phillips signed a statement to police that he would not press charges. The status of the police investigation was unclear Sunday. The report indicated a detective planned to interview Hundley this week when she returned from vacation.

Marni Phillips filed for divorce Sept. 14, according to court records.
