What's more American than baseball?
Well, maybe a few things, like apple pie, the American flag, Coca-Cola . . .
And smoking hot babes.
Do hot girls and baseball go hand in hand? Bien sur. After all, it has become common knowledge in the last 20 years or so:
Chicks dig the long ball.
Let's take a look at 25 unbelievably hot women who love baseball.
Minka Kelly, of course, is Mrs. Derek Jeter.
A lovely girl, we're assured that she adores baseball as much, if not more, as she adores Mr. Derek Jeter.
Julia Schultz is also a former Playboy Playmate and the wife of former Major Leaguer Brett Tomko.
What's that? Brett Tomko is back in the Majors? Oh, didn't notice.
Needless to say, Julia is better at what she does than Brett is at what he does.
Shannon Schambeau is the wife of former Washington National John Patterson and, apparently, a beauty pageant contestant.
Alyssa Milano is kind of the poet laureate of the baseball world.
Google "Alyssa Milano" plus "[the name of your favorite baseball team]."
I guarantee you will find a picture of Milano wearing a shirt with your team's logo on it.
In an ironic twist, Eva Longoria is one of basketball's most significant WAGs, or at least was until she and Tony Parker split, and Evan Longoria, the Tampa Bay Rays star, is dating one of baseball's most significant WAGs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader Jaime Hanna.
Who is totally smoking.
For those keep score, that is three sports, two Longoria and two babes.
Erica Ellyson is a former Penthouse Pet and a . . . ahem . . . softcore porn star.
She is also the girlfriend of Clay Buccholz of the Boston Red Sox.
Clay Buccholz, of course, is a 26 year old pitcher who threw a no-hitter in just his second major league start.
From Lumberton, Texas, Buccholz went to McNeese State in Louisiana, right down the road from Hurley, Mississippi, the hometown of the lovely Ms. Ellyson.
Is it me, or does the look on Erica's face in this picture say "What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a rockin' *ss before?"
Lisa Guerrero is a career sports-professional, from cheerleader to television personality.
The wife of former major league pitcher Scott Erickson, she posed for Playboy in 2006.
Okay, let me get this straight:
A few years ago, Zack Greinke almost ended his promising career because of social anxiety disorder.
But somehow, he ended up married to Emily Kuchar, Ms. Daytona Beach?
That is quite a comeback.
If you were ever going to become a professional baseball player, you would have to try to end up either with the Los Angeles Dodgers or the New York Yankees, because you would have access to the hottest babes.
Of course, Russ Martin has played for both teams. Count Marikym Hervieux amongst the girls Martin has dated.
Anna Benson is the classless former wife of former Major Leaguer Kris Benson.
(Don't worry about us having said that. Benson is so desperate for attention she'll be glad her name appeared on this list.)
Unlike many ballplayers, who marry already-established hotties, Kris Benson had the misfortune of marrying an attractive woman who subsequently did whatever it took to try to make a name for herself, which included posing in a variety of magazines wearing a variety of clothing (or lack thereof).
Classy, Anna. Classy.
She posed for the picture for a pictorial spread on "Scantily clad women clutching phallic objects in suggestive cries for attention.com"
A former member of the LSU track team, athletes turned Price is Right model Rachel Reynolds was married to Josh Booty, a hugely touted high school athlete who went bust.
Don't be fooled: the "pained" look on Rachel's face is not a reflection of the hot sun or a sexy juxtaposition for the camera.
Rachel is actually recalling Josh's professional sports career, during which he passed on a scholarship to play football and baseball at LSU, one of the top programs in the country in both sports, in order to sign a huge signing bonus with the Florida Marlins, before bottoming out in Double-A baseball before returning to LSU to finally play quarterback, only to enter the NFL draft after two seasons because he was about to lose his starting job.
She makes him wear designer clothes and makes him got to red-carpet events.
Frankly, if anyone who was giving him a hard time was married to Heidi Hamels, they would eat cheesesteaks while walking through Citizens Bank Park naked if she asked them to.
Brian Roberts hit the trifecta of hotness with wife Diana Roberts.
First, she was Miss FHM for 2006.
Then, she was a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal.
Finally, she became a pharmaceutical sales rep.
Those are three of the hottest professionals in the United States.
Eva Longora is always up for a day at the ballpark if it means she gets to cutely, and innocently, bare her midrift while warming up to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
The chance of Longoria showing up at the ballpark at a given game has got to be reason enough to get season tickets if you are an Angels fan.
This is the wife of Scott Podsednik.
I am as in to scrappy gold glove speed demons as the next guy, but this woman strikes me as slightly out of Scottie's league.
In this shot, Lisa Dergan is having a remarkably hard time keeping her clothes on.
Sweater is asunder, bra-strap is falling down the arm.
And hey lady, cross your legs for pete's sake.
Somehow, Holly Madison in a Las Vegas baseball jersey just makes since.
And I have no problem at all with the rules violation she is committing by having her shirt untucked and tied up.
She's lovely, she lives in L.A. and she is an attention hound.
But we like her and she is hot in a baseball jersey.
I always knew that this was a brutal rivalry, but I hate to see it come to this.
Not only can these girls not afford over-garments, but not they are about to get into a fight over this age-old rivalry.
It's not worth it girls; these two teams will rage on long after one of you spanks the other with your paddle and the other one of you impales the other with your stileto.
A Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and a Victoria's Secret model, Marissa Miller is a major asset to the modeling world.
It does not mean she could not take time out to throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field on this day.
A classic girl next door appearance by Audrina Patridge, one of the stars of television's The Hills.
Of course, as a resident of Beverly Hills, Audrina was only the "girl next door" if your parents made tons of money.
You could probably fill up an entire slideshow simply based on the girls Derek Jeter has dated.
But we'll take it.
Alba dated Jeter before ultimately marrying Cash Warren.
Despite the appearance of total nudity in this picture, Alba has never appeared in Playboy, which was the cause of controversy when a publicity shot for her film Into the Blue was featured on the cover of Playboy despite the fact that Alba did not appear in the magazine.
This became the subject of litigation.
Thank you, Derek Jeter, for dating Jessica Biel so that we could include her on lists like this one.
Is she classically beautiful or what?
Style, class and grace personified.
Well, this is not exactly the classiest pose in the history of pictures, but she remains stylish and full of grace.
Back before she became an international superstar, Halle Berry was married to Atlanta Braves outfielder David Justice.
The two of them may have been the most attractive couple in the history of the universe.
Of course, Berry became an international superstar just as Justice's career was winding down, and she dropped him like a bad habit.
(Though we know not what he did, Berry did require a restraining order during their divorce proceedings).
For my money, the hottest moment in movie history.
There ain't nothin' finer than a fine naked woman with a gun.
At the end of this life, Joe DiMaggio was known variously as the Yankee Clipper and the Greatest Living Ballplayer. He was one of baseball greatest players of all time, an iconic New York Yankee legend and the owner of one of baseball's most hallowed records, the 56 game hitting streak.
And if you would have asked him his most significant achievement, he would have told you that it was marrying Marilyn Monroe.
That says a lot about how awesome Marilyn Monroe was.
