Lakeland is home to a great group of radio stations (obviously), but it is also the Spring home to the Detroit Tigers. Amongst those Tigers is a man by the name of Justin Verlander, who just so happens to be in a relationship with this slightly attractive and famous woman named Kate Upton.
Justin and Kate (as we like to call them) make their home in Lakeland while down here for Training. It’s not odd to hear of them being spotted at one of the local restaurants or on the golf course. However, it is a rare opportunity to be able to be asked by their teams to help out with an event they’re participating in.
We were glad to be a part of the SPCA Grand Slam Adoption Event held at Tigertown, prior to a Spring Training game recently. While Justin was preparing to pitch, Kate was out and about meeting fans, playing with the dogs, and granting us interviews. It was truly a fun afternoon!
