One of the more popular past times of ball players is to rate which ball player has the hottest girlfriend. Girls are rated based on their face and body. If a player is dating a girl not reguarded as attractive, others players tend to question his eye sight or sanity.
Girls tend to like to date a ball player on team that wins often. One of the more funny stories I heard from a girl who dated a college player whose team was always being ten run rulled. She mentioned she was the only girl who admits to dating a player at their college, the others girls were too embarrassed to admit they dated a ball player on a crappy team.
