Townsend: Kate Upton says Yankees wouldn’t let her wear Tigers’ gear at Yankee Stadium

Life imitates Seinfeld yet again.

As you’ve probably seen or heard by now, Upton was seated directly behind the Tigers’ dugout to watch Verlander’s Tigers play against the Yankees on Tuesday night. At one point, they even had a fun exchange where Upton finally convinced Verlander to toss her a souvenir baseball. It was a light-hearted and fun moment, but apparently that’s as far as the Yankees were willing to let her go to show her support for Detroit.

While filling in for Kelly Ripa on Friday’s Live! with Kelly and Michael, Upton revealed to co-host Michael Strahan that the Yankees specifically told her she couldn’t wear any Tigers’ gear while sitting in the Legends seats at Yankee Stadium.
