Second dates are notoriously tricky affairs but for one sports fan in America, it was made even more awkward by his scheming housemate.

The American baseball fan decided to take his special lady to a game for a follow-up date after what we can only imagine was a successful first encounter for the pair.

Unbeknownst to the Arizona Diamondbacks supporter, his roommate had decided to formulate a prank that ensured his every move was being monitored.

The man's housemate contacted the Diamondbacks' social media team and asked if they could partake in his devious plot.

YouTuber Connor Buckley - who has more than 42,000 followers - tweeted to the social media team: "“Hey @Dbacks my roommate is on a date 6 rows above home plate. Any chance we could tell the camera man to zoom out a bit so I can see how it’s going???”

To his obvious delight, a message soon case back from the Diamondbacks' Twitter account showing a photo of the pair sitting in the stands together.

“Body language looks good — they seem comfortable. They just laughed too. Stay tuned for more…” the Diamondbacks’ account replied.

The man in question soon cottoned on to the fact his second date was being played out in a very public forum.

To his credit though, the poor guy still managed to see the funny side of the situation.

“Glad my 2nd date was broadcasted all over Twitter”, he replied.

The unsuspecting couple were later presented with some game-used baseball by the Diamondbacks so that they could "remember the occasion."

While it's unclear if the prank has scared the pair off dating in the future, viewers were having a field day at their expense on social media.

The Diamondbacks got straight to the point by posing the question on many viewers' lips, before seemingly answering it a short time later.
