Model Kate Upton Slams MLB Over Controversial Call

Model Kate Upton is married to MLB pitcher Justin Verlander who pitches for the Houston Astros. During the game, the umpires made a controversial call in regards to a home run that was interfered with. This caused the model to express her displeasure with the umpires.

According to The New York Post:

Kate Upton ripped into the MLB on Twitter on Wednesday night, after a controversial callcost the Astros a home run by second baseman José Altuve in the first inning of Game 4 of the ALCS.

“So if a player is IN the stands fans are suppose to move over? If those are the rules MLB shouldn’t let fans sit there. They didn’t reach over the fence. @MLB,” Upton, the wife of Astros ace Justin Verlander, tweeted.

After Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts couldn’t catch what appeared to be a home run from Altuve, umpire Joe West ruled the play fan interference and the call stood on replay.

“Watch this video! Mookie’s glove is closed. That’s a home run. #bulls–tcall,” Upton, 26, griped to her 2.3 million followers.

People on the internet shot back, trolling the model for complaining about the call. But it appears she was right, and interference actually did not occur in this case.
