Heating Up The Diamond
Baseball and basketball are unique in that the individual players’ faces are always visible, helping to make them some of the most recognizable athletes on the planet! Since we’re in the heat of the Major League Baseball season, we decided to take a closer look at the players running out onto the diamond every night. More specifically, we had thousands of people weigh in to determine which teams were the most attractive. Check out where your team ranks and if they’re making an impact both on and off the field.
Hottest Pennant Race Ever
Major League Baseball’s World Series of Attractiveness winners are the San Diego Padres.. They have a couple players to thank for their overall ranking, but most notably pitcher Third Baseman Ryan Schimpf who earned the highest rating on the team at a 7.2 out of 10.
They also could thank the bullpen for their contribution to their top rating. Three of the five most attractive players on the Padres are pitchers: Clayton Richard, Craig Stammen, and Wil Myers.
The only teams in the top ten from the American League were the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers.
Every Team’s Hottest Stars, American League
Here are the top five hottest players for every one of MLB’s 30 franchises. Red Sox Right Fielder Mookie Betts, who finished second to Mike Trout in the AL MVP voting last season, had the team’s highest appearance rating of 6.6 out of 10.
Only one team had more than two players rated at a 7.0 or above.The Kansas City Royals were that team, with Catcher Drew Butera and First Baseman Eric Hosmer at a 7.3 and 7.0 average attractiveness rating respectively.
Every Team’s Hottest Stars, National League
In America’s Heartland, the St. Louis Cardinals command attention from baseball loving fanatics. While their scouts have signed exceptional players such as Matt Carpenter, their most attractive players are Tyler Lyons, Matthew Bowman, and Dexter Fowler. When they’re not taking the mound, as starters or in relief, these three gentlemen are finding ways to look their best outside of the bullpen.
