In middle school, I got really into baseball. I loved the Yankees and was obsessed with Derek Jeter. I even created my own Jeter jersey by ironing on the design since my dad was unwilling to buy me an expensive baseball jersey. I thought my love of baseball would translate into me becoming a great softball player, but being timid and small prevented that dream from coming into fruition. I was scared of the ball and the other players.

After, I was disappointed and discouraged in myself. Watching baseball just reminded me of my softball failures. But in honor of the 2012 baseball season starting, and in hopes that this will inspire me to gain interest in the sport again, I’ve decided to gather up some of the hottest baseball players for your viewing pleasure.

Are you guys baseball fans? Who are your favorite players?

  • Trish Rollins

    I guess you forgot about dreamy David Wright being you’re a Yankee fan lol. No worries though – Davey forgives you =)

  • Amanda LaCroix

    Jacoby… oof. Totally in my top 3 “celebs.”

  • molls

    This headline kind of killed me.

  • Katy Hovis

    DAVID FREESE (aka MVFREESE…also, “sweet dreams are made of Freese”)…he won both MVP of the World Series (and got a SWEET car) and MVP of the NLCS.

    Basically, you can turn to the entire STL Cardinals baseball team to find the hottest players in baseball (Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, David Freese, the list goes on and on).

  • Colleen Sweeney

    I am a huge fan of the Phillies. I was in middle school with Cole Hamels, which I know is no freaking big deal, but I still feel cool about it.

    • Lauren Nelson

      it’s ok, because he’s also a baseball hottie

  • Sharon Alcera

    ian kinsler.

  • Katy Jones

    Danny Valencia & Danny Espinosa! Both deserving to be on this list.

      thats funny is that the mays card is a $5-$10 card. LOL the 66 topps books at 100 somethin. Next thing he says he’d buy uttmiale , and then while he is saying this, he points to premier . the other guy who’s opening the premier cant even pronounce david garrard’s name.. if ur opening somethin that expensive at least no that. there are retail cards (kmart, etc.) for kids (get them for a buck a pack) and hobby (cost more, ones in vid)nice vid tho

  • Melissa Carian

    Across from SF Giants’ catcher Buster Posey is their ace pitcher Tim Lincecum. Long hair, don’t care!

  • Mary Frances Shutes

    The pitcher/catcher combo of Justin Verlander and Alex Avila is deserving of a mention here. Go Tigers!

  • Karissa Garcia

    Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus. Holla.

  • Carli Goltowski

    JUSTIN VERLANDER!!!! Love me some Curtis Grandson as well! Great article!

  • Lauren Bell

    Cole Hamels & Chase Utley – Phillies
    Matt Holliday – Cardinals
    David Wright – Mets

    And I love baseball too. Always have. Probably always will. There is something about sitting in those seats in the grandstand and watching people who are paid way too much throw a great game of ball.

  • Gini Strobel

    Dexter Fowler of the Rockies shouls be on the list!!

  • Grace Gonzalez

    I was absolutely heartbroken last season when Posey was out after that massive tumble at home plate. I’m so excited he’s back! The whole world stops when he’s at bat (because that’s when the catcher’s mask comes off)

  • Betsy Murphy

    C. J. Wilson, former Ranger (I’m not allowed to use his current team’s name in my household 😉 )should def be on the list.

  • Marianna Wonder

    Daniel Murphy – Mets.

  • Rachel Jackson

    Just one question: where is Joe Mauer in that slideshow?!

  • Taylor Atwell

    Rangers’ second basemen Ian Kinsler is just adorable!

  • Hana Fisher

    Ranger’s new pitcher Yu Darvish!!!

    I remember some of it.Somebody hits the ball.Then he puts the bat on the gruond.The person that catches the ball must roll the ball and make it bounce up from the bat.the hitter must try to catch the ball.if he misses, the person that caught it gets to hit.if he catches it, he gets to hit again.Then its just a continuing cycle.its pretty fun.good lucktake care
