A Mets official approached a dating website that pairs older women with younger men, seeking to promote David Wright's All-Star candidacy.
The Mets ultimately backed out of a potential partnership.
Wright was recently named "MLB's Hottest Cub" through a vote of more than 11,000 respondents on the dating website Cougarlife.com.
He currently trails Pablo Sandoval in the voting to start at third base for the National League.
The Mets host the All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field.
