In honor of the All Star baseball game earlier this week, I am saluting the boys of summer -- professional baseball players -- in this month's Hot Dish.
While researching all the sexy men of baseball (and believe me, there are quite a few sexy players!!!), I stumbled across this photo and thought it would be perfect for the Hot Dish. Ladies, this is Gabe Kapler.
Gabe has played professional baseball for almost a decade. But I'm not going to list all of baseball stats here. That's not what this blog is about.
Instead, let's discuss the picture.
Personally, I think it is the perfect picture of a hero in a romance novel. Yes, he is handsome, but look closer. The muscles I see tell me he can keep me safe in the cradle of his arms. The squareness of his jaw tells me he is a determined man, never stopping until he gets what he wants. His eyes tell me he is sensitive and longs to be loved by the right woman. And his hands ... do you see how BIG his hands are? *blinking innocently*
So tell me ladies, what do you see in this picture of Gabe that would make him the inspiration for a hero we would all love?
