A few weeks ago, Justin Verlander gave a baseball to girlfriend Kate Upton, who was seated in the first row behind the Detroit Tigers dugout.

The following video, meanwhile, isn't nearly as sexy. But it's similarly sweet.

On Thursday, Chris Rock took in a New York Yankees game alongside actor Bobby Cannavale. And just as the announcers were talking about the star, a foul ball came his way.

As you can see here, Rock corralled the item and handed it to a young fan, making him a candidate for "public office," as announcer Michael Kay joked...

... but did he really catch the ball?

Sorry, Tom Hanks. But we beg to differ:

There is crying in baseball.

On Monday night, the Little League World Series from Rhode Island, Cumberland American, was eliminated from contention, leaving players in tears when they gathered around Coach Dave Belisle on the field after the game.

But Belisle refused to accept any sad faces, not from players who had played so hard and kept the game so close and who would have one thing they could take home with them that would last for all eternity: PRIDE!

Starting to feel yourself well up? Just wait until you Belisle's full pep talk to his downtrodden young team:

Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova is winning at life. And tennis, a lot of the time. She has five Grand Slam singles titles, after all. But always life.

Maria Sharapova Self Cover

In the new issue of Self, which features her on the cover, the star discusses how she keeps up that amazing body - for athletic purposes, of course.

Crowned a "SELF Made" cover star, Maria is lauded for her status as a successful woman pursuing her passions while also prioritizing a healthy lifestyle.

How does she do it? Sharapova insists her sole focus is the tennis court and winning tennis tournaments, and her appearance isn't even an issue.

As a side effect, it just happens to be amazing. Just saying. It's a nice benefit.

"I have a competitive drive. It’s ferocious and powerful, and it’s about winning," she explains. "When I’m on the court, I’m not thinking about how I look."

"I do my ponytail in two seconds, and I’m not wearing a stitch of makeup," adds the blonde beauty. "I’m confident in my skin, and I’m there to play the game.”

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has generated millions of dollars for a very worthy cause and, perhaps just as importantly, raised awareness of a debilitating and often deadly illness.

Needless to say, the Challenge has done a lot more good than possibly any online trend in history. On top of all that, it's now given us a gift upon which no price can be placed:

The sight of Kate Upton in a wet t-shirt!!!

Yes, Kate and Justin Verlander went viral recently when he tossed her a baseball during a Detroit Tigers game, and it looks like they may do it again with their Ice Bucket Instagram clip.

Listen up, THGers.

As various celebrities have proven over the years, it really doesn't matter what you name your baby. Go ahead and be as ridiculous as you want, no one cares much in the big picture.

But your fantasy football team? This is serious business. This is your chance to prove to your friends that you're witty and creative; that you're attuned to pop culture and/or current events.

Trust us: you do NOT want to eff this up.

So consider the following pun-based monikers, some of which are not exactly safe for work. But that's what makes them so fun! Oh, and one more thing: if you conquer your league with any of these names, THG is entitled to a cut of your winnings.

It's only fair, right?

That Philadelphia father whose little girl threw back a foul ball and became a viral sensation a few years back can relate to this St. Louis dad's plight.

During Saturday afternoon's match-up between the home team and the visiting Padres, Cards fan Jason Tighe snagged a foul ball from a San Diego batter.

He made a nice catch, to boot, but his son wasn't sufficiently impressed. Or was just confused that they could keep it, or just wanted to get in on the action.

In any case, when Jason handed the ball off to his son Noah, as any proud father would, the youngster threw the game ball right back onto the field.

The father's reaction, as you'd expect, was pretty priceless.

Fortunately, they got the ball back, thanks to Padres third base coach Glenn Hoffman ... although dad wisely pocketed the souvenir the second time around.

Kids. They say, do and write such awesome stuff ...

Elin Nordegren and Chris Cline, her boyfriend of one year, have broken up. The main takeaway here is that Elin Nordegren is once again on the market!!

Elin Nordegren Bikini Photo
Elin Nordegren in a bikini? Now that is some photo, are we right?

The Swedish model, 34, and the billionaire, 54, recently parted ways, ending her first serious relationship since she and Tiger Woods ended their marriage.

The golfer and Elin Nordegren finalized their divorce in 2010 after his still-unbelievable cheating escapades were exposed on Thanksgiving night, 2009.

Nordegren and Woods have impressively moved past that, though.

The couple, who share daughter Sam, 6, and son Charlie, 5, have grown increasingly amicable since the split, and get along very well nowadays.

Elin is even reportedly a fan of Tiger's girlfriend Lindsey Vonn.

Tony Stewart has pulled out of a second NASCAR race this weekend and remains in hiding after the tragic August 9 crash that killed Kevin Ward Jr.

Authorities are continuing to investigate, reportedly with the help of a second video of the crash, to decide if criminal charges should be filed against him.

The footage, filmed by a fan, allegedly shows Tony Stewart accelerating as he came close to Kevin Ward, who was wearing dark clothing on that fateful day.

In the video, Tony is reportedly seen hitting the younger driver with his rear right tire, which pulled him under the car, then threw him back up in the air.

The car of Tony Stewart killed Kevin Ward Jr., who died of massive blunt trauma to the head after he was struck outside his own vehicle last weekend.

The up-and-coming racer from New York State was just 20 years old.

Stewart’s reps have claimed that he did not see Kevin, but another driver, Paul Kinney, told NBC News: “Only Tony knows exactly what happened."

However, "I seen Kevin clear as day. Nobody else ran into him, either.”
