On Sunday night, as the Houston Astros eliminated the New York Yankees from the playoffs with a three-game sweep, all eyes were on Kate Upton and her outrageous costume. Justin Verlander, the team’s starting pitcher, was instrumental in their success, turning in his third Cy Young-caliber season despite being 39 years old.
A few short years ago, it appeared that his body would eventually give out on him. Not so. He had such a great 2022 season that he plans to forego the second year of his contract and seek greater compensation this coming summer despite being on the cusp of turning 40. Verlander has had a great year. On Sunday night, he deserved to be congratulated. And Upton, his dressed-up wife, was there as well.
That’s the kind of thing that makes you incredibly happy to see. This isn’t the first time Upton’s wardrobe has made headlines in recent weeks. It seems like nothing good has happened to her recently, what with her racy pool video and her wild summer photographs. Upton will be featured prominently in the coming weeks as the Astros prepare to compete in their fourth World Series in six years.
Gleyber Torres and Isiah Kiner-Falefa, New York’s middle infielders, had a chance to conclude the seventh inning with a double play, but they botched the play. New York led, 5-4. Only time will tell if the Philadelphia Phillies suffer the same fate. Whatever the outcome, you can count on Upton to support her boo and grab headlines in her signature style.
