Lawsuit: Female Tigers Fans Unknowingly Starred in 'Soft Core' Videos

A lawsuit filed by the Detroit Tigers' former scoreboard operator alleges team photographers shot inappropriate "soft core videos" of female fans at home baseball games, the Detroit News reports.

The videos were "freely and openly shown in the scoreboard area to all employees and supervisors on almost a regular basis," claims the sexual harassment suit filed by former Comerica Park scoreboard operator Reanen Maxwell, the paper said.

"We believe there is no merit to the allegations," Karen Cullen, a spokeswoman for team owner Mike Ilitch, told the News.

The story did not describe what specifically was shown in the videos.

Maxwell worked for the Tigers during the 2006 and 2007 baseball seasons, according to the paper. In addition to alleging that the "continued showing of the soft core videos" made for a hostile work environment, the suit claims a technical assistant to the scoreboard director slapped her buttocks, "telling her how much he liked her butt."

Scott Ferncombe, the man responsible for selecting and recording crowd shots at the games, told the News he didn't "know of any secret stash of videos" and nothing inappropriate was recorded to his knowledge.
