All-Star Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Sports Illustrated swimsuit pinup Kate Upton spent some time together last weekend in Detroit, fueling rumors that the two might be an item.
The comely blonde model, a native of St. Joseph, Mich., was seen by several fans in Verlander’s suite at the Palace of Auburn Hills at last Thursday’s Aerosmith concert. TheÂ two starsÂ were joined by her BFF, model Lizzy Glynn, and his pal Frank Viola, Jr. (son of Minnesota Twins’ pitcher Frank Viola).
After the show, the gang relocated to a bar with a mechanical bull (also nearby is Auburn Hills’Â Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar And Grill). According toÂ this TweetÂ andphotoÂ from Glynn, Viola chivalrously took off his pants so she could wear them on the ride.
“He took off his pants so I could wear them to ride the mechanical bull. Yes, Southern gentlemen do exist!! @FrankViola3,” Glynn Tweeted.
Detroiters later saw the foursome classing up their evening with a few cocktails at Birmingham’sÂ South Bar.
The next night, UptonÂ turned upÂ at the Detroit Tigers game sporting a baseball cap with the Old English D.
Earlier, the two starred in an ad together for MLB 2012 on joining “The Perfect Club.”
