Baseball season may be right around the corner, but the diamond is already heating up in round two of our Athlebrity Madness tournament! Last week we asked you to vote for your favorite baseball star, the one who blurs the line between athleticism and celebrity—embodying that pop-culture tour de force known as the Athlebrity.
Check out the results!
Several of the national pastime's biggest names made it easily to the second round.
World Series champ and beard enthusiast Brian Wilson continued his streak of domination, sending Alfonso Soriano home after grabbing 55 percent of the votes. Derek Jeter also breezed by his competition, ending Jose Reyes short season after pulling in 65 percent.
But this first round was all about the upset. Not only did underdog Josh Hamilton sent Manny Ramirez packing after completely dominating with 68 percent of the votes, but Joe Mauer showed Alex Rodriguez the door, bringing in 58 percent to the Yankee star's 42. Has the public officially tired of A-Rod's spotlight-grabbing antics?
Who'll make it to the next round? Will Rihanna's Dodger boy Matt Kemp keep his game going? Can Chase Utley hang with the high rollers of the second round? Vote now! And be sure to follow all the action on Twitter @eonlineSports.
