Heather Locklear's father is letting it be known he wants his daughter to stop dating rock stars and find a good baseball playing boyfriend.

The actress' dad, BILL, isn't letting the ink dry on his daughter's divorce papers before trying to fix her up with a replacement for her estranged husband, BON JOVI star Richie Sambora.

The couple split at the beginning of the year (06), and now Bill wants his daughter to settle down again.

According to American magazine In Touch, he was overheard telling friends at his Westlake Village, California golf club that he'd like his daughter to date someone like course regular BRET SABERHAGEN, a baseball hero.

Outspoken Bill reportedly told pals, "Bret's a good guy, he's handsome. She should date someone like him and stop the nonsense with wild musicians."
