The most wonderful time of the year is finally upon us, as Opening Day for the MLB is set for April 3. We've been waiting all year for the return of those sexy baseball jerseys, and the men wearing them who have stolen our hearts. From All-Stars to philanthropists to straight-up models, here are 31 baseball boys we'd love to spend time with.
Mike Trout: Los Angeles Angels
This five-time All-Star, two-time All-Star Game MVP has been regarded as one of the best players in all of MLB currently, as well as one of the most outstanding players in the history of baseball. And come on, he's also pretty easy on the eyes.
Jacoby Ellsbury: New York Yankees
Ellsbury is the first Native American of Navajo descent (thanks to his full-blooded Navajo mother, Margie) to reach the MLB.
José Bautista: Toronto Blue Jays
Joey Bats, who happens to be a member of the 50 homerun club, set up a program in 2011 that helps athletes from the Dominican Republic and Canada attend schools in the United States and pursue their dreams.
Eric Hosmer: Kansas City Royals
The K.C. cutie has made a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City, where he's given thousands of dollars in donations and hundreds of hours.
Kris Bryant: Chicago Cubs
We can't get enough of the 2016 National League Most Valuable Player—and it's not hard to see why.
Cole Hamels: Texas Rangers
Hamels covers all the expenses of The Hamels Foundation, which funds education programs for children in Africa and Philadelphia. 100 percent of every dollar goes to the children.
Brett Lawrie: Chicago White Sox
We have the land of maple syrup to thank for this Canadian third baseman. O, Canada! He was recently released by his team, but here's hoping this cutie gets picked up elsewhere.
Ervin Santana: Minnesota Twins
Minnesota Twins pitcher Ervin Santana will be a starter on Opening Day (*heart eyes emoji*)—just another reason to tune in on April 3rd.
Paul Goldschmidt: Arizona Diamondbacks
This gorgeous first baseman goes by the nickname "Goldy."
Corey Seager: Los Angeles Dodgers
Lucky for us, Corey's got three brothers, two of whom are also involved with the MLB.
Marcus Emien: Oakland A's
Semien was drafted as a high schooler by the Chicago White Sox in the 34th round of the 2008 MLB Draft. He chose not to sign and to study at U.C. Berkeley instead before entering into the MLB. Good looks and brains!
Noah Syndergaard: NY Mets
Syndergaard acquired the nickname Thor, and it isn't difficult to see why. With that sculpted body and glorious locks of hair, he's a real-life superhero.
Christian Bethancourt: San Diego Padres
Bethancourt began playing baseball at age 5 in Panama City, Panama, where he was born and raised.
Kevin Kiermaier: Tampa Bay Rays
Kiermaier has gotten attention for his strong arm, outfield defense, and frequently stealing home base.
Leonys Martín: Seattle Mariners
Leonys was named after Lionel Richie, his mom's favorite music artist.
Anthony Rizzo: Chicago Cubs
This three-time All-Star began a non-profit organization with his family called the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation, benefiting cancer research.
C.J. Wilson: Los Angeles Angels
That smile has us believing that angels really do exist.
Xander Bogaerts: Boston Red Sox
Xander, nicknamed the X-Man, has a twin brother named Jair who is an international free agent, lucky for us.
Anthony Santander: Baltimore Orioles
We're dying for Anthony Santander to take us home and meet the parents—and the fact that he was born on Margarita Island, Venezuela, has nothing to do with it (we swear).
Josh Rutledge: Boston Red Sox
Just looking at this infielder makes us want to switch allegiences to be Boston Red Sox fans.
Jason Kipnis: Cleveland Indians
Kipnis may have lost the World Series, but he stays winning in our hearts.
Javier Báez: Chicago Cubs
This Puerto Rican hottie is good with his hands. No, really—he's left-hand dominant but throws and bats right-handed.
Daniel Norris: Detroit Tigers
Despite his $2 million signing bonus, Norris lives off of just $800 a month, choosing instead to stick to his roots and live a minimalist lifestyle. He can live in our tiny house anytime.
Anthony Rendon: Washington Nationals
According to his parents, Rendon began playing baseball at a very early age. He enjoyed hitting pinecones with sticks as early as 3 years old.
James Hoyt: Houston Astros
At 6-foot-6, Hoyt has a pretty wicked fastball, clocking in anywhere from 94 to 96 mph.
Alexi Amarista: Colorado Rockies
Amarista's height is listed variously as 5'7" or 5'8"—so he was given the nickname "Little Ninja" by Padres catcher John Baker.
Jonathan Villar: Milwaukee Brewers
This Dominican second baseman has a name that sounds as hot as he is: Jonathan Rafael Villar Roque.
Howie Kendrick: Philadelphia Phillies
Howie's warm smile makes us automatic Phillies fans.
Tyler Glasnow: Pittsburgh Pirates
We may not all be Pirates fans, but we sure do like the booty.
Matt Kemp: Atlanta Braves
The long-time Dodger once dated Rihanna, and we couldn't be more jealous (of Rihanna, of course).
Dexter Fowler: St. Louis Cardinals
Fowler became the first player in baseball history to lead off a World Series Game 7 with a home run, contributing to the Cubs' first World Series title in 108 years. Marry us, Dexter?
