Is Poteat just a piece of meat?

Today is Seth Poteat's big day. Normally a mild-mannered corporate sales representative for the Lexington Legends, Poteat draws the spotlight tonight when the Legends hold a "Win a Date with Seth Poteat" promotion.

The 29-year-old said the Legends came up with the promotion because several girls who work in the front office want to get him married. Poteat decided to play alone.

"I'm looking forward to it," Poteat said. "Everyone keeps asking me, 'Why are you doing it?' It's not for me. It's for all the lovely ladies here in Lexington."

Lexington radio broadcasters have been promoting the event for the past week, and word is season ticket holders are excited to participate.

What kind of girl is Poteat hoping to meet?

"I'm not going to lie to you, she's got to be attractive," Poteat said. "She's got to be comfortable with herself. She has to not take herself too seriously."

Poteat says he prefers blonds, but adds that for some reason he seems to date more brunettes.

The Legends will pay for the date, sending the couple to local restaurant and possibly to a concert.

The best part of the promo? The girl Poteat chooses doesn't actually have to go out with him. She can take the prize and walk away, leaving Poteat to, ahem, fend for himself.

The Dugout will monitor the promotion and get back to you with the results.
