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...

Verlander posts hideous nose spray picture on Instagram, funny comments ensue

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.
