PHOTOS: Kate Upton works with MLB to find homes for puppies

  • David Whitlock

Three things that I like:

  1. Baseball
  2. Puppies
  3. Kate Upton

Not necessarily in that order (especially #2 and #3).  But combine all three, and you’ve got me hooked.  Supermodel Kate Upton appeared today in Viera, FL, to raise awareness for puppies in need of homes for a “Grand Slam Adoption Event.”  The 22-year-old is passionate about pet adoption and tweeted some of the highlights (via @kateupton)


Baseball fans know the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model has been dating former Cy Young Award winning pitcher Justin Verlander for several years.  Not coincidentally, Verlander and the Tigers were in Viera for the game today.  Fans may not know that Upton grew up in Melbourne, FL, just a stones throw from the Nationals Grapefruit League home.

A great cause supported by Upton; it’s nice when celebrities use their fame for good.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
