Alomar Considers Leaving Toronto

American League

Roberto Alomar’s agent is reportedly asking Toronto to trade the all-star second baseman.

Alomar was shaken Sunday after police told him a woman with a loaded revolver had checked into the SkyDome Hotel - where he lives - with the intention of killing him because she had been unable to befriend him.

“It could be the end of me in Toronto,” Alomar said. “I have to think if I want to stay here.”

Meanwhile, the woman charged with threatening to kill Alomar spent Monday night in jail awaiting a bail hearing.

Police said Tricia Miller came to Toronto four days ago intending to shoot Alomar and then turn the gun on herself. She was frustrated by past attempts to “develop a relationship” with the Toronto Blue Jays’ All-Star second baseman.
