Diehard fans of Kate Upton will most certainly want to catch her recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Not only does she participate in a hilarious, '80s-style aerobics dance challenge with Fallon (replete with Jazzercise moves and outfits), but she notes that she nearly missed her wedding to Houston Astros superstar pitcher Justin Verlander.

The revelation comes after Fallon introduces a video gag challenge in which Verlander manages to work in a reference to Fallon's 2005 baseball-themed romantic comedy, Fever Pitch, during a red carpet interview in which he's asked the secret to netting a supermodel wife. "Man, there's no secret," Verlander tells the interviewer. Then, "I recently watched a movie, Fever Pitch. It still holds up."

Challenge unlocked. After the clip, Upton admits that the movie does, indeed, hold up. "Honestly, it still does really hold up," says Upton, noting that she relates to Fallon's movie love interest, Drew Barrymore, who is bound by Fallon's character's insane love for the Boston Red Sox.

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
