The Locker Room > Kate Upton Makes Cute Face After Getting Baseball From Justin Verlander Kate Upton Makes Cute Face After Getting Baseball From Justin Verlander Posted on 8/5/2014 10:09:00 AM by Dave Kim Mike Stobe/Getty Images It's no secret that Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander isn't having a great season this year. Fans haven't been shy about expressing their displeasure, but the Tigers ace has one devoted admirer - his supermodel girlfriend Kate Upton. Detroit was in the Bronx last night (August 4) to face the New York Yankees, losing 2-1. During the game ESPN cameras caught an interaction between baseball's top celebrity couple. Upton was sitting behind the Tigers dugout telling her boo she was sitting there the entire game. Apparently that earned her a free baseball as Verlander tossed one her way. The blonde bombshell's reaction after receiving her prize is pure adorableness. It's like she watched the cutest cat GIF in the world, 4.66 ERA be damned.
