SI model Kate Upton tweets to Phil Humber


SI model Kate Upton tweets to Phil Humber

Saturday morning Phil Humber was just another major-league pitcher for the White Sox.

By early-evening Saturday, he was world famous after throwing just the 21st perfect game in MLB history. With his new fame comes attention from several unexpected individuals. That was the case Sunday afternoon, when Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover model Kate Upton sent the following tweet to Humber:

Congrats to @Philip_Humber of the White Sox for getting into the Perfect Club. Looking forward to fitting your jacket! 2ksports hah Kate Upton (@KateUpton) April 22, 2012Of course, Upton was referring to her MLB 2K12 commercial about the "Perfect Club," where she only lets in pitchers who have thrown a perfect game. In the ad, she lets Randy Johnson pass while denying Justin Verlander. If you haven't seen it, or just want to watch it again, check it out below:
