Second dates don’t get more awkward than having thousands of people watch your every move.
That’s what happened to an unsuspecting baseball fan when his outing with a love interest became a chuckling topic for the internet this weekend.
It was revealed Monday (AEDT) a couple in Arizona became a play thing for fans on social media after the Arizona Diamondbacks social media team took sleuthing to an extreme new level.
The team blew up the second date with a series of posts and photos of the couple — and even broadcast a video of them on the big screen inside Chase Stadium during the team’s loss to the Colorado Rockies.

It has now been revealed that the poor gentleman’s roommate was behind the pile on, having started the ball rolling when he got in touch with the team’s social media department to keep an eye on his roommate’s date, The New York Post reported.
YouTuber Connor Buckley, who has more than 42,000 followers, pressed the Diamondbacks’ social account with the message: “Hey @Dbacks my roommate is on a date 6 rows above home plate. Any chance we could tell the camera man to zoom out a bit so I can see how it’s going???” Buckley tweeted.
But the question on everyone’s mind: is there gonna be a third date?? https://t.co/9O4SrYMPWopic.twitter.com/7HNPqRQzva
The message was received by the Diamondbacks’ social team, which then replied to Buckey’s original inquiry with a photo of his friend and a female companion.
“Body language looks good — they seem comfortable. They just laughed too. Stay tuned for more…” the Diamondbacks’ account replied.
Glad my 2nd date was broadcasted to all of Twitter😂❤️ https://t.co/373QnBfQDF
Buckley’s pal also got in on the social action, quipping, “Glad my 2nd date was broadcasted all over Twitter”.
The Diamondbacks later presented the pair with a few game-used baseballs “to remember the occasion.”
It is still unknown if there will be a third date.
