Kate Upton, Mark Buehrle welcome Philip Humber to Perfect Club

Kate Upton
Apparently all it takes is a perfect game for supermodel Kate Upton to notice you. Upton tweeted White Sox pitcher Philip Humber on Sunday:

Upton, of course, is in the MLB2K12 commercial with Justin Verlander as the greeter to the Perfect Club. If you haven't seen the commercial, you probably don't watch too much baseball, but just in case, here it is.

Humber also got a text from his former teammate and fellow Perfect Club member Mark Buehrle.

Buehrle said he texted "Welcome to the club!" to Humber after Humber finished the perfect game.

"When we got back to the room, I turned it on after the sixth inning and followed it on the computer. Then they broke in on Fox for that ninth inning and I got to see the end of it,' Buehrle told reporters, including Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post. "I was sitting in my bed nervous, just the anticipation of not knowing what was going to happen, just waiting to see if he's going to get it. My palms were sweating. I felt like I was more nervous laying in bed yesterday than I was on the mound during mine."

The Hall of Fame has already requested a game-used ball and either Humber's cap or jersey from Saturday's perfect game.

"Hopefully I get to keep as much of it as I can," Humber said of his gear from Saturday's game (via the Chicago Tribune). "I doubt I'll throw one again, so it would be nice to have as much stuff to remember it as I can."

Humber is also scheduled to tape a Top 10 list for The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday.
