Houston Apollos shortstop Marlon Trigg Jr. is engaged to socialite celebrity Paris Hilton, according to reports from TMZ. The controversial shortstop, who has been known for his wild partying in the past, has been dating Hilton since mid 2005. They met during the time he spent on the DL with a strained shoulder in May.
Los Angeles Stars owner Walter O’Malley is reportedly upset about the engagement, as Hilton is the heiress to her father’s company, Hilton Hotels, which has a sponsorship deal with the Stars.
“We’ll definately be looking at this. We have a deal with Hilton Hotels, but I don’t like the idea of a star player from a rival being associated with the company that owns the naming rights to our stadium.” said O’Malley to reporters outside during the ULB Winter Meetings.
Her father, Richard Hilton has no comment regarding the spat with the Stars, but said that the family liked the Junior Trigg, and that he had gotten along well with Trigg’s father, who died in 1999.
