The love fest didn’t end there. Editors had a thing for the hunky men of single-A Wilmington Blue Rocks during the ’90s. DT recognized shortstop Shane Halter in 1993 and catcher Ramy Brooks in 1996 for their overall attractiveness. Halter went on to a pretty decent major-league career with the Royals, Mets, Tigers and Angels, even playing all nine positions in a single game during the 2000 season. Brooks?
