She brought up the College World Series, and how she had seen me pitch. Another stroke to the ego. She was playing it perfectly. Drawing me in. She sent me some pictures that day. No, guys, not nudes." Los Angeles Angels prospect Michael Roth explains how he was romantically pursued by a hoaxster (which is called catfishing).
