0 of 50

    Arms are cocked, firm grips perfected and smiles in full flight. There's nothing quite like watching beautiful women chuck professional balls farther, harder and more violently than the athletes we pay good money to watch.

    With swimsuit supermodel Kate Upton showing off her rocket arm at the humorously-mislabeled "Fox Flash" yesterday, we felt the need to dig for more instances of hotties with balls (excuse the pun).

    Ready yourself for a free fall towards athletic beauty, an intriguing, entertaining ride indeed.

    Here are 50 pics of hotties tossing or enjoying pigskins, baseballs and whatever other piece of athletic equipment we can find. 

    Prepare to duck.

50. Lauren Conrad Fights the Stereotypes

1 of 50

    If you like enjoy like endless likes and continuous no ways, then Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County star Lauren Conrad is your kind of girl.

    And with form like this, she'd offer a memorable backyard catch as well.

49. Hilary Rhoda Does the Stretch

2 of 50

    Let's chill out with the shrieking smile over there.

    But hey, it's all part of the distraction. Those hitters never have a chance.

48. Natalie Von Bertouch

3 of 50

    Australia clearly has an endless collection of scintillating athletes, all eagerly awaiting a new pair of lenses to peer in on them.

    The focus is breathtaking, if not historic.

47. Kim Kardashian Fights Back

4 of 50

    The Kardashians were made to complement the basketball court, and it's only a matter of time before Kim permanently strays from the gridiron and solidifies herself as a hardwood hag.

    Chris Paul's jeep party was just another chance for her to not go away.

46. Looking for Daylight

5 of 50

    As the speck of baseball increases in size, it becomes clear we only have several moments before the lens is shattered.

    She's got a wicked aaaaaammm.

45. Anna Kournikova Continues to Shine

6 of 50

    The white-man overbite is a nice touch, but let's work on the jerky windup.

    Smooth it out.

44. Ace of the Staff

7 of 50

    With world-class beauty and off-the-chart skills, this hurler is quickly heading for greatness.

    The sweat bands truly complete the uniform, it's all about the swag.

43. Michigan's Fab Fine

8 of 50

    Left arm extended, right cocked behind, bow in hair eloquently tied: She's a star in the making.

    But her joyful game face needs a bit of intimidation work.

42. Lindsey Vonn Never Fades

9 of 50

    Somehow, between dominating the photo shoot scene and throwing out ceremonial first pitches, Lindsey Vonn managed to win four overall World Cup championships as an alpine ski racer.

    How does she do it?

41. Eastbound & Doubt

10 of 50

    Don't even disagree for a second that this scrappy ballplayer doesn't look like Katy Mixon from Eastbound & Down.

    But seriously, she's got that innocent, yet feisty aura.

40. Victoria Beckham Remains at Large

11 of 50

    This shot is presented more for a taste of humor than for its attempted sexiness.

    Posh Spice's gaping expression reeks of confident discomfort; she's owning it, but not feeling great about it.

39. Needing No Introduction

12 of 50

    They just might be the most gifted ball girls in the world—the Madrid crew in the flesh.

    The undeniable stare, world-class agility and flexibility. Wow.

38. Hola Padre

13 of 50

    Not sure what's going on with the face, but this San Diego ball girl clearly has her accuracy mastered.

    Angled arm directed straight ahead—one lucky fan waits in the wings.

37. Rima Fakih Works the Corners

14 of 50

    Having dated Jays pitcher Ricky Romero since last year, you know 2010 Miss USA Rima Fakih learned a bit about tossing a masterful two-seam fastball.

    But more importantly, she's perfected her mound presence.

36. Illegal Formation

15 of 50

    And by throwing a ball we mean thrusting her pointer finger at the penalized footballer.

    She's getting ready to put a lethal bend on that round mix of synthetic leather.

35. A Reversal for Natasha Henstridge

16 of 50

    A collection of decent film roles finally reached the spotlight when Natasha Henstridge threw out a ceremonial first pitch.

    The Canadian actress was glued to the catcher's mitt.

34. Breaking the Mold

17 of 50

    Don't be fooled by this Madrid ball girl's innocent stare and unsuspecting grip, she looks quite ready to thrust this pair of yellow spheres towards the crowd.

    Although, we'd prefer a hilarious chuck at the players instead.

33. The Famed Formation

18 of 50

    Despite what looks like a chest pass, this bone-crushing beauty looks ready to pummel all who cross her path.

    A perfect wildcat specimen.

32. Maria Menounos Expands Her Resume

19 of 50

    From bikini-clad in Times Square to ferociously sexy on Dancing with the Stars, Maria Menounos seems determined to fill every crevice of elite sports reporting.

    A threatening palmball is the latest surprise in her repertoire.

31. Not Quite a Minnie Driver

20 of 50

    Preparing herself for a vicious downward snap, Minnie Driver perfects the arm angle and extends the leg.

    She must've learned it from Will Hunting in Kindegaaaaden.

30. Finning for Victory

21 of 50

    With a one-eyed stare down, it doesn't get any more intimidating. 

    The goal posts are a nice touch.

29. Skyscraping Greatness

22 of 50

    Such brilliant footage, masterful focus and precise depth.

    This photographer certainly did his homework.

28. Amanda Beard's Diversity

23 of 50

    As a seven-time Olympic medalist swimmer, Amanda Beard doesn't need to worry about dominating the pitching mound.

    Worst case scenario, she becomes an aerodynamic base stealer after she retires from swimming.

27. Audrina Patridge Flips the Script

24 of 50

    If you enjoy unnecessarily dramatic reality shows and typical, dumb-teenager slasher films, Audrina Patridge is your actress.

    But she also seems to throw a wicked forkball.

26. Jessica Alba's Quest

25 of 50

    Despite having the ability to instantly silence a crowd, Jessica Alba decided to play it cool on the kickball mound.

    Wearing Risky Business-esque sunglasses, Alba can't be intimidated.

25. New Honcho in Town

26 of 50

    Despite a glistening smile on her face, this fan shows us that true talent lies deep beneath the surface.

    Blaine Gabbert may look the part of a fearless signal caller with the long-hair-don't-care approach, but a subtle trim may significantly improve his awareness.

24. The Multi-Talented Kate Upton

27 of 50

    She's thrown a football in heels, performed the Dougie at a Clippers game and chucked a neon-bright baseball (here during the 2011 MLB All-Star festivities).

    What more can Kate Upton possibly do to get noticed?

23. Earning Her Doll-Hairs

28 of 50

    She may seem to be taking the ball to the house herself, but this fan is clearly a team player and is always looking for a down-field pass.

    The smile is solely to distract the defense.

22. The Art of Sexiness

29 of 50

    The Lingerie Football League is a beautiful thing, let's just be honest. 

    No need to fluff its effect any further.

21. Halle Berry Is a Strikeout Machine

30 of 50

    The windup seems a bit off, but we trust Halle Berry's obtuse form.

    We already know she can play a mean outfield after being married to David Justice for three years (1993-96 for those keeping score at home).

20. Leryn Franco Feels the Jav

31 of 50

    She's known more for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue appearances than her athletic prowess, but it's nice to finally see Leryn Franco honing her craft on the field.

    A vicious javelin toss indeed.

19. Kayla Ewell Changes the Pace

32 of 50

    Normally a "slutty" high school student in a town shadowed by vampires, Kayla Ewell seems determined to expand her repertoire.

    Volleyball seems like a solid (albeit expected) transition.

18. Liv Boeree Shows Her Hand

33 of 50

    17. Remembering Jennie Finch's Legend

    34 of 50

      Always dominant, often flashy, Jennie Finch is now offering fans a new side of the story.

      Dark and ominous, with a mysterious flavor, we've yet to witness such a beautiful nightmare.

    16. Doutzen Kroes Rules the Mound

    35 of 50

      Dutch model Doutzen Kroes became a worldwide sensation overnight (it seems) when she was offered a ceremonial first pitch opportunity with the Blue Jays.

      The Victoria's Secret angel seems to be winding up a flimsy circle changeup.

    15. The Only Samurai

    36 of 50

      So maybe she's thrusting a sharp dagger at the camera, but let's not forget that Eliza Dushku has been with former baller Rick Fox for some time now and certainly picked up some athletic tricks along the way.

      Particularly the game face.

    14. Reby Sky Reaches for the Stars

    37 of 50

      She's the Giants superfan flooding the Internet, hogging the cameras and tarnishing opponents.

      Reby Sky is always ready to hike the ball when needed.

    13. Clemson Roar

    38 of 50

      Just before she releases the pigskin, this diehard fan offers a bright smile and a swaggerous hip lean.

      She's got it going on.

    12. Chalkboard Talk

    39 of 50

      This can't possibly be good for team focus.

      But it's the perfect way to eliminate any bounty systems. Don't ask why.

    11. Eva Longoria Keeps Coming Back

    40 of 50

      We've yet to lose our interest in Eva Longoria, as her scintillating smiles always keeping us engaged.

      Tony Parker will forever be despised for his ways.

    10. Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen

    41 of 50

      It's the shot that continues to shadow the sports world.

      A scintillating beach bum preparing for a vicious chuck, it doesn't get any better.

    9. The Junk Grip

    42 of 50

      With an adjusted, lazier version of the eephus pitch, this budding star seems moments away from a silly strikeout.

      She decides to show us the intricacies first.

    8. Sunny Delight

    43 of 50

      Looks like the sun took a hold of this sexy cheerleader, as she yet again forgot to throw the ball. 

      All she can do is bask in the camera's snaps.

    7. Giant Memories

    44 of 50

      Ball in hand, arm revved up and game face perfected, she seems ready for practice.

      The oak bat is for her also-bikini-clad partner.

    6. Marisa Miller Gets Involved

    45 of 50

      Half windup, half pose—we'd expect nothing less from swimsuit legend Marisa Miller.

      Solid Chi-town promotion that day.

    5. The Rugby School of Beauty

    46 of 50

      The endless stare is magical, sure, but the lethargic approach is what really gets the scouts drooling.

      Ms. Italia has all the makings of a boom-or-bust quarterback.

    4. Kate Upton Perfects the Spiral

    47 of 50

      Heels were perhaps a fatal addition to Kate Upton's outfit when she joined Giants phenom Jason Pierre-Paul in midtown yesterday to help promote a Fitness Without Borders upcoming event.

      On second thought, they don't seem to be hindering her precision.

    3. Jenn Brown's Heisman Pose

    48 of 50

      With a stiff arm like that, throwing the pigskin seems unnecessary.

      The former Gators softball player and current ESPN hottie seems determined to take it to the house herself.

    2. Dirt-Covered Prowess

    49 of 50

      Hands are unacceptable in soccer, so players must rely on their strengthened chests as a way to advance the ball.

      This star has perfectly combined seduction and skill.

    1. Nicky Whelan Can't Be Stopped

    50 of 50

      Crikey! What a catch.

      With a stare like this, Australian model Nickey Whelan gives the folks down under quite the masterpiece.
