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.
You've got the sun above you, beer and hot dogs in hand, and a couple of hours to kill, usually enough time to determine if you'd like to play tonsil hockey with this person sometime down the road. ' It's kind of a big hang-up, because it's hard, especially in L. "A lot of guys find it intimidating when a girl is rattling off statistics and they're clueless, so I've learned from past experience that that doesn't always work out that well." Maggie grew up in St.
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.

The couple has a visit to Oakland, California, on the agenda, as Maggie has never been to Coliseum. "I'm the kind of person who wants to book a last-minute trip to go see my team play and he's really understanding of that and supportive. He actually hooked me up with tickets to a Padres game, so I drove down to San Diego to go with my sister." Maggie says the best parts about dating a fellow baseball fan are the shared interest in the game and having a friendly rivalry to bond over. They already made the trek up north to AT&T Park, where she met his parents at a game. "One of my goals is to see the Cardinals play in every stadium," Maggie says.
