Though Richard Verlander Sr. already told Celebuzz his grandkid, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, is dating Kate Upton, when asked about the hot topic by USA Today, the man himself replied: "I'm not confirming or denying anything ... I'll leave that to my grandfather. God bless him." Justin's dad added, "It's pretty amazing that somebody gets paid to talk to an 87-year-old man to ask who his grandson is dating. You have to laugh, but we did have to counsel Pa-pa." Can you counsel Justin not to overthrow the ball? Just wondering.
