Grady Sizemore pictures raise the ire of Indians' center fielder
Racy photos of Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore were posted on several Internet websites today, but Sizemore complained the shots were "stolen" from his girlfriend's e-mail and said he was taking legal action.
"These pictures were stolen illegally from my girlfriend's e-mail," Sizemore told the Cleveland Plain Dealer this weekend.
"It's now a legal matter that is under investigation. I can't say anything more."
A major league baseball investigator contacted a number of the websites posting images this weekend and asked that they be taken down.
One of the sites still featured the shots Monday morning but also posted the note from the official.
The message said the pictures were stolen from a personal computer and directed the site to preserve any related records in anticipation of a criminal complaint.
