Kate Upton flirts with Justin Verlander over Detroit Tigers Opening Day tickets

In just a matter of days, Justin Verlander will open the Detroit Tigers season in his start against the Kansas City Royals.

Verlander, being the nice guy that he is, wanted to offer fans tickets to the sold out game by putting together a Twitter contest.

The rules were simple – tweet Verlander your best baseball story using a simple hashtag. Easy, right?

Well, that was the thought until supermodel and Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model Kate Upton got in the mix.

The on-again, off-again, now on-again girlfriend of Verlander playfully tweeted out concern that the Detroit Tigers ace was giving away her Opening Day tickets.

Thankfully, I’m pretty sure Miss Upton’s tickets for Opening Day (or any game) are completely safe – so need to worry my busty, blonde friend.

Complete side note, but have to imagine the Tigers players are happy Upton and Verlander are back together because she’s certainly increased the eye candy around team events – sans the whole man in a bikini thing.
