We all love the boys of summer, but let’s be real here…”she-fans” probably enjoy the game of baseball a little more than men do. Why? Oh, the pictures in this entry will tell you why. After doing some thorough research, I gathered up pictures of the hottest men who simply make watching this season’s October baseball that much better.
Now, I realize some of you may not like the selections I made for different reasons (i.e. maybe you don’t think they’re cute or you have a personal reason, etc.) but this is just for fun, so I hope you gals enjoy it!
Let’s start off with with two of the cutest pitchers the Philadelphia Phillies have to offer: Ryan Madson and Cole Hamels. Quick Facts: Madson, 29, was born in Long Beach, CA and has an uncle who also played in the majors. Hamels, 26, was born in San Diego, CA and is a new daddy to first child, Caleb! (born 10/9/09 during an NLDS game vs. the Rockies)
Then we have some Angels that are certainly heavenly…yeah, I’m cheesy. lol Anyway! We’ve got the outgoing Torii Hunter and this beautiful catcher, Jeff Mathis. Quick Facts: Hunter, 34, is an Arkansas native that has been in the majors for 11 years. Mathis, 26, was born in Marianna, FL and has only played for the Angels. (led the team to their 1st ALCS win 10/19/09 with a game-winning RBI double)
Now, onto some men that know how to rock Dodger Blue the right way: Andre Ethier and Russell Martin. Quick Facts: Ethier, 27, was born in Phoenix, AZ. He plays RF and has his own food blog called Dining With Dre here on MLBlogs! Martin, 26, was born in East York, Ontario and has been their starting catcher since 2007 (he started his major league career in ’06!)
Finally, there’s my personal favorite set of men in the league. I swear I’m not biased at all. lol It goes without saying that these men are some breath-takers on and off the field. I absolutely love men in uniform, especially the pinstripe kind, but imagine what they look like without the uniforms on…ummm anyway…Got your towels ready? Make sure not to drool all over your computer…
I’m not really going to elaborate on these guys, but for the sake of those that don’t know who they are (how can you not!?)…I’ll briefly explain.
Starting from the top left corner and moving across: Francisco Cervelli (23, Catcher), Johnny Damon (36, Outfielder LF), Melky Cabrera (25, Outfielder CF), Robinson Cano (26, Second Baseman), Nick Swisher (29, Outfielder RF), Alex Rodriguez (34, Third Baseman), Mark Teixeira (29, First Basemen), Phil Hughes (23, Pitcher), and finally…Derek Jeter (35, Shortstop).
I think all these men are good-looking, but there’s no secret that I just adore Nick Swisher and Francisco Cervelli. They’re both so insanely adorable and have this awesome spirit about them. They love to play the game, they play it hard, and you can tell that they truly appreciate being a part of this incredible team. That makes them so much sexier!…but I shall stop myself here because trust me, I can go on and on about those two! ;))
Oh, and there’s one more special guy I just wanted to point out, because he is the hottest nerd I have ever seen majors…I think you know who I’m talking about…Joe Girardi. What other team has a manager that’s even remotely close to looking as good as our Joe? Surely none that I know of!
(LAST MINUTE ADDITION!) I can’t believe I forgot to put this guy!…upon request…
Andy Pettite (37, Pitcher)
So, whether you’re celebrating a playoff win or trying to forget a loss, all us ladies need to take a step back and appreciate the bigger picture ;D
Thank you, Postseason Hotties, for providing us women with a little more to look foward to during the playoffs!
