She’s the object of affection for millions of men all over the world, but it seems only one guy gets Kate Upton's attention- MLB pitcher Justin Verlander!

The buxom blonde supermodel has been romantically linked to the Detroit Tiger, and Justin’s grandfather Richard Verlander Sr has confirmed the news.

“I heard he has been on dates with a Sports Illustrated girl. I saw a photo — she’s beautiful. They make a good looking pair because he’s a good looking man too,” explained Grandpa Verlander.

“I do know he’s on the dating scene. Justin is a fine boy and whoever he ends up with is lucky. He’s not only a great baseball player, he’s a great guy.”
