Daron Sutton and Mark Grace secure second date for Romeo Diamondbacks fan

With 162 games of airtime to fill, there's a lot of opportunity for baseball's broadcast crews to make mischief during some of the down time, especially in blowouts. Some do it. Some don't. But for my money, there are few better than Arizona's Mark Grace and Daron Sutton.

That was evident earlier this week when the pair's audio feed cut out, but they scored more points with a fun situation on Tuesday. Watch as Fox Sports Arizona cameras identify a couple on its first date at a game between the Diamondbacks and Cardinals at Chase Field before the duo enlists reporter Mark McClune to investigate the Romeo and Juliet further.

An interactive text poll to decide whether or not you get a second date?

And here I thought that landing on Kiss Cam was potentially the most awkward thing that could happen when you decide your first date will take place at a ballpark.

Seriously, though: While I know that Grace isn't for everyone, the team down there deserves credit for realizing that all three hours of the broadcast don't have to focus just on the action. There's an entire show in the stands, too, and the D'Backs always have fun recognizing that — even when they're being beaten by the birds.
