Donna Karan loves baseball. After announcing the news of her DKNY-sponsored lounge and billboard at Yankee Stadium, the designer paid a visit to see her handiwork prior to Friday night's game against the Texas Rangers.

In the morning, she had appeared on "The View" and staged a full scale fashion show. But by the early evening, instead of chatting about frocks and draping, she was talking tattoos with hurler A.J. Burnett and posing for pics with the likes of Joba Chamberlain and Alex Rodriguez.

"I can't wait to come back and throw out the first pitch," she told StyleList exclusively. "I'll have to start practicing!"

We can't either! Though the date has yet to be set, one thing's for sure. We can almost guarantee that Karan (queen of the seven easy pieces) won't be wearing Mom Jeans like this famous person did when he stepped on the mound.
