Kinsler's soft brown eyes say sensitive, scruff screams seductive, and lips add just a touch of sweetness. - Helene Caniglia, FBD reader

As a nice change of pace, the company decided to put the ball in the ladies’ court this July. They're conducting the most anticipated annual event among female baseball fans, the Diamond Studs Contest. This year, they have teamed up with Advanced Telecom Services, a mobile marketing company that provides the same short code (84444) in both the US and Canada, to provide text message voting to help determine the sexiest player in Major League Baseball.
Two years ago, after much heckling from their female readership, FBD created a contest much like Baseball’s Hottest Wives, but instead ran Baseball’s Hottest (Looking) Players. The contest was promoted via Twitter and Facebook and allowed fans to tweet and post their votes. Well, they’re at it again, but they've thrown in a curve ball – text message voting. FBD hopes they will be able to reach an even greater audience with the incorporation of mobile.
The contest features 25 Major League Baseball players that many women wish they could hit a home run with. Derek Jeter, 2010 winner, and Joe Mauer, 2011 winner, are both contestants this year as well. Can one of them hold their title or will he be picked-off at first base?
As for what position our female readers like, they overwhelming enjoy playing the field. The vast majority of nominations are outfielders. Following not far behind is pitcher. Although starting pitchers only get to see the field once every five games, the ladies seem to love a man in control and calling the shots from the mound.
So without further ado, here is the Dream(y) Team lineup for Baseball’s Hottest (Looking) Players:
1. Adam Wainwright - St. Louis Cardinals
2. Alex Rios - Chicago White Sox
3. Andre Ethier - Los Angeles Dodgers
4. Barry Zito - San Francisco Giants
