One of the added benefits of being a ball player is girls tend to like ball players. Some girls more than others.
One mom told me as soon as her son started throwing 90 mph he had no problem getting a date to the prom. Not sure if girls are carrying radar guns now, but more girls seem to be checking out Baseball America and MLB Draft Rankings.
One girl I had met at a game told me her impressive list of ex boyfriends two 1st round picks and MLB players. She said she had standards and read scouting reports on players.
