According to the report, NiShea Gilbert, 26, a teacher at Beth Shields Middle School in Ruskin, Fla., told the court that her husband threatened to kill her and sent a photo of a gun to her cell phone.

Gilbert played a voice mail message for the Times that she said came from Dukes: "You dead, dawg. I ain't even bulls-------. Your kids, too."

The wife of the Tampa native has filed requests for protection against him twice, the Times said. A court hearing on her latest request is May 30.

Dukes was approached by Times reporters after batting practice Tuesday evening but declined to discuss the allegations.

"I'm just going to play ball, that's it," he said. "I've got to go. I've got a video game to finish."

Apparently he hired Alec Baldin for the voice message and to also take care of the kids.
