Verlander flirts, rolls baseball to Upton during game

- August 5th, 2014

BREAKING NEWS: Justin Verlander gave Kate Upton a baseball.

In case you’re dying to know, here’s the play-by-play:

  • Upton, sitting in front-row seats above the visitors’ dugout, is enjoying Monday’s New York-Detroit game at Yankee Stadium

  • Upton playfully says one sentence before Verlander lobs a ball across the roof of the dugout
  • The ball reaches Upton; the couple exchanges smiles; the end

We’re not completely sure what Upton says to prompt the throw but, because the Internet is a wonderful place, we have a few (mostly sarcastic) guesses.
