Major League Baseball continues to set attendance records, and that means a larger-than-ever cross section of people are attending the games. A good portion of baseball fans can be labeled as sexy, so PEOPLE Magazine is teaming up with MLB to find out which one is "The Sexiest Fan Alive."
On Monday, PEOPLE announced the nine finalists in the nationwide search for "The Sexiest Fan Alive." Selected from more than 2,000 entries, the finalists represent a good sampling of baseball's most passionate and loyal fans.
A panel of judges, including celebrity guest judge Greg Grunberg of NBC's hit series "Heroes," reviewed the entries and selected nine finalists, one of whom will go on to be named the "Sexiest Fan Alive" on Nov. 16. Fans can visit www.PeopleSexiestFan.com to vote for the finalist they think should receive the coveted title. Voting takes place through Oct. 26.
