With the Detroit Tigers two up on the New York Yankees things are looking great for the team, the fans, and especially Justin Verlander, who basically had to come and save the day during the last game of the last series. While dating rumors are the last thing on our minds, Verlander’s grandfather, Richard Verlander Sr. has recently spoke out about the rumors of his grandson dating supermodel Kate Upton. The two themselves have kept their mouths closed regarding the rumors, but Grandpa V says, “I heard he has been on dates with a Sports Illustrated girl. I saw a photo — she’s beautiful,”Grandpa V told Celebuzz. “They make a good-looking pair because he’s a good-looking man too.”
Celebuzz also stuck to finding details on the relationship from the grandparents of Kate Upton. Kate’s Grandfather said she had attended one of the recent games against Oakland and that the family supported Verlander and the Tigers. The two have been rumored to be dating since their appearance together in the MLB 2k12 video game commerical which can be seen below.
Do you think this recent news will distract Verlander during games? If I was on the mound and had her in the stands watching, I’d be distracted and feel extra pressure to impress the lady. Justin Verlander is obviously on another level and can handle the pressure.
Bless you boys and GO TIGERS!!!
