PHOTO: Justin Verlander shows young fan his curveball grip

Justin Verlander spent a quick minute showing a young Tigers fan one of the secrets of his success Saturday during TigerFest at Comerica Park.  He showed the boy his curveball grip.  And before you comment, I know that curveball grips are pretty standard for the most part.  My point is – it is cool to see JV go “above and beyond” to show this kid how to throw a deuce in...

Kate Upton: Verlander once got ‘blackout drunk’ after bad start

Athletes have their ups and downs, and it’s important for them to learn how to take the good with the bad. Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander is no different. He had a rough 2014, in which his ERA skyrocketed to 4.54 with a 15-12 record. It was quite a difference from 2011 and 2012, when the hard-throwing pitcher compiled a 41-13 record in those two seasons combined, with an...

Kate Upton praises 'inspiring' Verlander after near no-hitter

By Jason Rowan Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander came oh-so-close to notching his third-career no-hitter Wednesday night, but suffered understandable heartbreak when Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta led off the ninth inning with a double.
