EDISON - Two New Jersey men could face criminal charges after sending sexually explicit messages about the underage daughter of former major league pitcher Curt Schilling.

Last week, Schilling congratulated his 17-year-old daughter on Twitter after she was accepted into college.

Several people responded to the post by tweeting vulgar and sexually explicit comments about her. Schilling publicly named them on his own Twitter account.

Schilling wrote about it on his blog Sunday, saying that the ignorance and lack of morals and integrity were astounding. He said it's never OK for a man to talk about a woman like that.

Two of the men are from New Jersey. One was a ticket seller for the New York Yankees. He has since been fired.

Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo said Tuesday that the team has "zero tolerance for anything like this."

The other man was a Brookdale College radio host. He has lost his job as well.

Authorities are looking into the tweets. If the men are charged and convicted, they could be labeled as sex offenders.
