Last year, the fantasy baseball blog created a page devoted to the gorgeous wives of Major League Baseball players and noticed an immediate boost in incoming traffic. After several profiles of these same famous baseball wives generated similar interest, the team of bloggers behind Fantasy Baseball Dugout decided to let their readers have the final say in who truly is baseball’s hottest wife.
The History Of Baseball’s Hottest Wives
In 2008, ten finalists were selected for the contest based on search trends and page views of hottest wife nominees. Voting to determine the winner was text message driven and handled entirely by mobile marketing company PromoTXT. The blog received over 3500 votes with former fashion model Heidi DeRosa, wife of then Chicago Cubs infielder Mark, named the winner with almost 50% of the vote.
