Kate Upton & Justin Verlander Will Donate All of His MLB Paychecks During the Shutdown

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are doing their part to help people in need throughout the current health crisis.

Justin just found out that the MLB will be paying players while the league is shut down so they are going to be donating all of his paychecks from this time period.

If you were wondering, Justin makes $33 million a year and he has the largest salary ever for a pitcher, according to Forbes.

“Recently the @mlb announced they will be continuing to send paychecks to players while the season is suspended. @kateupton and I have decided to donate those funds to a different organization each week so that we can support their efforts and highlight the great work they’re doing during the COVID-19 crisis,” Justin wrote on his Instagram account.

“Everyone around the world is affected by this virus, and we hope to contribute to the families and jobs affected, the healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines and the many others in need of basic necessities, medical supplies and support at home. As soon as the first paycheck is received we will be highlighting the first organization. We know everyone is impacted by this crisis, but for those who are able, we encourage you to stay home to help flatten the curve and look to those around you who need a helping hand,” he added.
