There is just something about being a professional athlete that lures in the girls. Despite all of the negative stereotypes associated with dating sports stars, there still seems to be no shortage of women willing to get with them. And as if playing sports for a living wasn’t cool enough, a lot of these women are actually super hot, famous, and successful. There are plenty of hot celebs who just love dating professional baseball players.
Some of these ladies settled down and married an MLB player and lived happily ever after. There are other stars who have gone from baseball player to baseball player, making it seem like they definitely have a type when it comes to dating. Then there are those chicks who just love athletes in general and took their turn at getting with a baseball player just to add variety to their roster. Whatever the situation is, there are just so many gorgeous women who have been charmed by baseball players.
Weirdly enough, it’s not like these hot celebs are dating a lot of different players in Major League Baseball, but in reality it seems like there is a super small pool of these dudes who have gotten with the hottest women on the planet. I have no idea how people with such public dating lives continue scoring new ladies, but I guess it’s easy to overlook a player’s reputation when he is a successful sports star. Personally, I would be a pretty hesitant about getting with one of these dudes, but then again, I am far from a hot celebrity, so what the hell do I know?
On the other hand, these fifteen hot celebs love to date baseball players.
15. Kate Hudson – A-Rod
Despite his womanizing reputation and the steroid usage, I weirdly wanted Alex Rodriguez‘s relationship with Kate Hudson to work out. I didn’t realize how much I cared about it until it was over, but there was just something nice about these two people, who are infamous for their dating lives, finally settling down and with each other. A-Rod wasn’t even the only athlete that Kate Hudson has dated. The gorgeous actress also dated infamous cyclist Lance Armstrong. So maybe it’s not baseball players that get Kate going, but she actually has a thing for athletes who take performance enhancing drugs?
14. Lisalla Montenegro – C.J. Wilson
Lisalla Montenegro is a hot Brazilian model, so it really is not shocking that she landed herself a professional athlete as a husband. The beauty is married to C.J. Wilson who is a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels. They are both equally hot and pretty successful in their respective fields, so it’s not shocking that they ended up together. Plus, this marriage makes Lisalla Montenegro the epitome of athlete WAG (wives and girlfriends) goals. There is no denying that C.J. Wilson is one lucky dude. I mean come on, look at her: Lisalla Montenegro is absolutely gorgeous.
13. Kate Upton – Justin Verlander
Anyone who gets to be in the same room as Kate Upton is indisputably blessed, so the fact that Justin Verlander actually gets to date her is a pretty unreal honor. Plus, if I am really keeping it real, I have to say that she is significantly hotter than he is. But then again, Kate Upton is significantly hotter than most human beings, so I don’t see why she wouldn’t date this dude. These two have been going strong for a long time and it looks pretty likely that Kate Upton will go from being a baseball girlfriend to an MLB wife.
12. Halle Berry – David Justice
To be honest with you, I kind of forgot that David Justice was a baseball player. Whenever I hear his name, I just immediately associate him with being Halle Berry’s ex husband. Their marriage was so infamous and its fallout is so great that it is still playing out in the press today. So it’s pretty tough not to immediately think of her when his name is brought up in any conversation. The two of them were married from 1992 to 1997 which is a pretty long time and enough to give Halle Berry that lifelong WAG status in the baseball world no matter who she’s dated since then.
11. Minka Kelly – Derek Jeter
I feel like we all had such high hopes for the relationship between Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly. I don’t know about you, but I really thought that she was the one for him. They were such a perfect couple. They were both smoking hot and did what they could to remain low key. She really seemed like a woman who really cared about him for who he was and not the pro athlete cache. Sadly for anyone who rooted for their relationship, Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly broke up and he is engaged to Sports Illustrated model Hannah Davis. Nevertheless, in my eyes Minka Kelly will always be the one who got away for Derek Jeter.
10. Rihanna – Matt Kemp
I feel like it really takes a lot to impress Rihanna. So I imagine that she is pretty picky when it comes to the men that she acknowledges, let alone anyone that she actually dates. This makes me think there has to be something pretty special about Matt Kemp for Rihanna to give him a second look. I really know nothing about him other than the fact that he is a baseball player who was blessed to date Rihanna and in all honesty that is all that I need to know. The dude could die a legend just for that relationship alone.
9. Cameron Diaz – A-Rod
Even though Alex Rodriguez has a notorious reputation as a player, I just always cheer for whoever he is dating to help tame his wild ways. And I also really wanted Cameron Diaz to settle down with someone hot. Plus she’s such an active person, so I felt like they could do a lot of fun, athletic activities together or something. They were a serious item for a while, but then there were all those cheating rumors about the threesomes and the prostitutes and I just don’t blame Cameron for getting out of that situation. Sometimes athletes can just have access to way too much.
8. Joanna Garcia Swisher – Nick Swisher
Joanna Garcia Swisher is one of those women who can manage being both adorable and hot at the same time. She really encompasses what it takes to be wife material, so I don’t blame Nick Swisher for putting a ring on it and marrying her. The two seem to be a happily married couple and they have a cute, little family together. Joanna Garcia Swisher is such a babe and the Yankees’ right fielder and first baseman is a super lucky man to have her in his life and they currently have their second child on the way. And it looks like Joanna landed herself a solid dude who negates the negative baseball player dating stereotypes.
7. Jessica Biel – Derek Jeter
Pretty much every woman on this list is an ex girlfriend of Alex Rodriguez or Derek Jeter. So to continue with that pattern, Jessica Biel is another one of those infamous Derek Jeter exes. I have no idea how this dude does it, but he really does land some of the hottest women on the planet. As we all know, Jessica Biel has moved on from the dream of being a baseball wife and is married to Justin Timberlake and has a child with him, but being on each other’s list of conquests is a pretty impressive feat for both Derek Jeter and Jessica Biel.
6. Jessica Alba – Derek Jeter
The interaction between Derek Jeter and Jessica Alba is something that will fascinate me for years to come. I don’t think that I will ever get the answers to my questions, but I just want to know if those notorious rumors about Derek Jeter giving Jessica Alba herpes are actually true. I know that I would never actually be able to find that information, but that is the only thing that comes to mind when those two names are mentioned in the same sentence. Thankfully Jessica Alba is done being a baseball player’s girlfriend and is happily married with children.
5. Misty May-Treanor – Matt Treanor
Misty May-Treanor is a super famous beach volleyball player with Olympic gold medals, but she is not the only athlete in the family. She is definitely the most famous athlete in her family though. Misty May-Treanor is married to former MLB player Matt Treanor. Matt Treanor has been a catcher for the Florida Marlins, Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. I can’t imagine being in this family and keeping up with the athleticism, It sounds too intense for me to even think about. But if anyone is going to get Misty May-Treanor’s lifestyle, it is another professional athlete.
4. Adriana Lima – Derek Jeter
If you’re wondering which Yankee Adriana Lima got with – since that is basically the pattern of this list – Adriana had a thing with Derek Jeter back in the day. She may have ended up marrying a basketball player, but she did take on the role of a baseball player’s girlfriend back in the day. I have no idea how he does it, but it seems like Derek Jeter has dated or hooked up with pretty much every hot celebrity that exists. Props to him for getting with a supermodel among the other amazing stars that he has been associated with over the years.
3. Hilary Duff – Barry Zito
As her fans are well aware of, Hilary Duff‘s most significant relationship has been with a hockey player named Mike Comrie who she married and had a son with, but she has also been a baseball player’s girlfriend in the past. Back when Hilary Duff was just nineteen, she dated Major League Baseball Player Barry Zito. I guess she got over the whole baseball player thing since she is technically still married to her hockey player husband, but I guess this just makes Hilary Duff a certified WAG. And now that she’s working through her divorce maybe she will ditch hockey and give that baseball love another try?
2. Alyssa Milano – Dated Three Players
If anyone could be considered to love dating baseball players, it is Alyssa Milano. This is because Alyssa Milano has dated three baseball players over the years. She used to date retired baseball player Carl Anthony Pavano, a pitcher who has played for a few teams including the New York Yankees, Florida Marlins, and the Cleveland Indians. She dated another MLB pitcher named Brad Penny, so I am suspecting to see a pattern in her past. And to top it all off, Alyssa Milano’s third baseball player ex is another pitcher named Barry Zito. Clearly the girl was going through a phase.
1. Jennie Finch – Casey Daigle
If anyone is going to understand what it is like to date a baseball player, it is probably a professional softball player, right? I mean it makes perfect sense to me that two people who play such similar sports would end up getting together. Olympic gold medalist and softball player Jennie Finch has been married to minor league baseball player and former MLB player Casey Daigle since 2005. Yes, Jennie Finch is definitely the way more famous and successful ball player (by far), but that doesn’t take away from the fact that she is a hot woman who has thing for dudes in this sport.
