Having the last name Upton can have it’s perks, which apparently includes getting a chance to perform a photoshoot with model Kate Upton. That’s exactly what took place last month when the Atlanta Braves traveled to Citi Field to take on the New York Mets.

Braves brothers B.J. and Justin Upton got the chance to join the swimsuit model on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s October issue, which marks the first time a swimsuit model has been featured on the weekly edition of the magazine. This edition of the magazine is for the MLB playoff preview, but first you have to enjoy looking at Kate Upton before you can move on.

Here is the cover from the latest edition of Sports Illustrated:

Lucky fellas.

The Braves open up their postseason on Thursday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, so they can only hope that the luck continues to fall in their direction. If it doesn’t work out, at least they can look back and remember that they got to do a photoshoot with Kate Upton. That’s one hell of a perk.
