Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Like most of the other "sports wives" shows, Baseball Wives offers a voyeuristic look into the high-class, sorority-like community in which these women appear to circulate. Although some of them are successful, professional women in their own right, they define themselves by the material wealth and status that comes from being the partner (or former partner) of a baseball player.

Some of the challenges that come with being in a long-term relationship with a pro athlete are discussed, but it's the catty drama between these women that drives the show. Their social interactions seem a bit contrived and leave you feeling like these exchanges are simply being performed for the camera. It's definitely not for everyone, but fans of the franchise will probably find it entertaining enough to tune in.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
