When you think about it, a baseball game is a perfect first date. "They're all into their clothes and Hollywood," the 29-year-old says of the guys she'd encountered in So Cal.There's enough action on the field to give you something to talk about or fill the awkward silences, but it's not too loud or frenetic, so conversation can flow. "I'm like, 'Can we just eat hot dogs and watch baseball?
Louis Cardinals fan Maggie* was dying for that perfect first date, but she was having a heck of a time trying to track down a guy willing to watch an entire baseball game.Louis watching the Cardinals with her grandfather, who once threw a no-hitter as a member of the St. "I spent every summer with my grandfather on the lake," she says. I was just raised on it, it's in my blood." So when a banner ad reading, "Meet other singles in your area who like baseball" popped up on her MLB. She clicked on it and ended up on the "MLB Singles, powered by Match.com" landing page."I've tried a few other dating sites before and wasn't impressed," Maggie says."This was the first time I ever paid for a dating service.I made 'N1Stl Cards Fan' my user name as a way to find people who were truly baseball fans and help break the ice.A lot of the messages I got, they used the Cardinals fan thing as a great way to start a conversation." MLB Singles launched earlier this year and, according to Match.com, since then more than 550,000 members have added an MLB badge to their profile to identify themselves as baseball fans and acknowledge their favorite teams.
(And, surprise, surprise, the New York Yankees badge is the most popular one on the site.) Right around the same time the MLB Singles page hit the web, so did Packers Backers, a site that aims to pair up Cheeseheads looking for love.
According to the home page, about 2,600 Packers fans have signed up, but the site didn't respond to requests for updated statistics or potential success stories.
Sports Passions.com, Golf Mates.com, and Fan are some of the other dating sites that look to aim Cupid's arrow at sporty singles.
NFL Network broadcaster Rich Eisen is even getting in on the action -- he partnered with Nike Football to create the Free Agent app for sports-loving singles.
Using a shared interest in sports to bring singles together not only works well for dating sites like Match.com, which earned a new paying customer in Maggie, but also for MLB, which launched the partnership hoping to get baseball fans paired up and buying tickets to games.
"The idea is to put like people together with similar interest and passion," Noah Garden, Major League Baseball Advanced Media's executive vice president of revenue, told The Associated Press.
