When the Hall of Fame pitcher retired in 2010, he began pursuing a second career in photography. Johnson previously studied photojournalism at the University of Southern California.
"Baseball became my occupation for two decades but my love of photography never left," Johnson says on his website. "Following my 2010 retirement, I was able to focus my attention back to this passion."
Teigen spent some of her childhood in Snohomish, Washington, a suburb of Seattle, seemingly while Johnson played for the Mariners.
In the follow-up exchange, Teigen reminisced on the moment Johnson hit a dove while trying to hit a pitch in 2001.
