Football and basketball are well-known for the many sideline reporters that pepper their broadcasts. Hockey utilizes an ice-level reporter found in-between the benches.
Well, baseball is getting there.
But when ESPN utilizes Erin Andrews as a field reporter during baseball broadcasts, you know there is hope that gorgeous field reporters will soon be gracing baseball games on a more regular basis.
So in that spirit, we've compiled 15 of the most beautiful women ever to cover America's Pastime, either on the field or in the studio.
Amy K. Nelson is a staff writer who covers baseball for ESPN.com, along with making weekly appearances on ESPN's "First Take."
I wouldn't blame you if you just did a "Double Take."
Gutierrez is the field reporter for CSN Bay Area's coverage of the San Francisco Giants.
She also hosts several features for CSNBayArea.com including "Buster Knows Squat, "Dishin' it With DeRosa and "Amy G's Giants Xclusive."
What, no "Things We Found in Brian Wilson's Beard?"

Hazel Mae currently hosts "Quick Pitch," the MLB Network's highlight show of the day's baseball action.
Baseball highlights AND the beautiful Hazel Mae?
Thank you, MLB Network, thank you very much.
Theoharis was the on-field Orioles reporter for MASN, though she had to give up the gig after giving birth in October.
However, according to the Baltimore Sun, she will be remaining with the network in other capacities:
"...She'll be focusing on interviews and features for the network's "Mid-Atlantic Sports Report," blogging regularly and filling in for Jim Hunter alongside Rick Dempsey on the "O's Extra" pre- and post-game shows when Hunter shifts into the booth for play-by-play."
And all of Baltimore's men breathe a sigh of relief.
Lisa Kerney is a host and reporter for the MLB Network, appearing on shows such as "Hot Stove" and "MLB Tonight."
Apparently, Einstein was a Kerney fan:
"Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity."

Donaldon hosted "Mets Weekly" during her time working for SportsNet New York, though she would leave in 2008 to become a reporter in Boston. She disappeared from the spotlight, however, after being the victim of assault from her then-boyfriend Ivan Lattimore, a professional Slamball player.
In June of 2010, she filled in for Jill Sorenson, covering sports stories for Comcast SportsNet’s Mid-Atlantic network.
Thompson covered the Rockies for FSN, along with performing a slew of other tasks for the network such as hosting the weekly news magazine show Rockies All Access, as well as The 2007 MLB All-Star Game Red Carpet Parade and The Baseball Report.
Most recently, she covered the NHL for Versus as an ice-level reporter, though the network dropped her in February after the NBC-Comcast merger.
Sansone spent time working for CBS Sports and covered the Red Sox for NESN. She is no longer active in the sports world, however.
"Currently Maria co-hosts and contributes to the daily live show "LX New York" on WNBC New York City. Maria is also a regular contributor to TV Guide Network's "Hollywood 411" and can be found live on the the red carpet at all major award shows."
A loss for sports fans everywhere.
Watney is the field reporter for NESN's broadcasts of the Red Sox.
Let's just say that she is the only thing worth seeing at Red Sox games early on this season.
And now a surprise pick—the little-known Erin Andrews.
Andrews—among her many other jobs at ESPN—is a sideline reporter during MLB games on ESPN, namely the Monday Night Baseball broadcast.
I have a feeling this reporter is going to become quite popular with the gentlemen.
Just a hunch.
