Model  Kate Upton threw the internet a curveball this week when she took a strong stance about the Red Sox’s win against the Houston Astros    — well, about one play in particular. 

During Wednesday’s Game 4, Upton was obviously upset about the fan-interference call made when Mookie Betts tried to catch José Altuve’s coulda-woulda-shoulda-been home run at the bottom of the first inning.

 “Mookie (Betts’) glove is closed. That’s a home run,” Upton wrote on social media on Wednesday night, retweeting SportsCenter’s video that was captioned: “Mookie Betts was about to rob José Altuve of a home run … until a fan’s hand got in the way. It was ruled an out on review.”   

Upton deemed the ump’s ruling a “#bull(expletive)call” and was tweeting up a storm in protest of the out. The model, who’s married to Astros pitcher Justin Verlander and is currently pregnant with their first child, might be considered a bit biased when it comes to her baseball beliefs. But she even went so far as to start dissecting the MLB rulebook, specifically Rule 3.16, which pertains to spectator interference when the ball is in play.   

“So if a player is IN the stands fans are supposed to move  over?” Upton wrote. “If those are the rules MLB shouldn’t let fans sit there. They didn’t reach over the fence. @MLB”

She proceeded to retweet other Twitter users’ reactions to the call, including one person’s claim that Betts “was in the stands starting at his elbow,” as well as another individual’s conspiracy theory that the league was trying to set up a World Series between Los Angeles and Boston for better TV ratings.   

Upton’s color commentary apparently elicited a share of responses from fellow baseball fanatics, some she didn’t take too kindly. Specifically, the star wasn’t too thrilled about people’s use of pet names, feeling that they were an insulting way of undermining her opinion on the matter. 

“I feel the need to acknowledge & address the amount of people who have called me ‘princess’, ‘honey’ or a terrible ‘girl’ sports fan,” she tweeted after the game. “Just because I have an  opinion on the call doesn’t give you the right to be degrading &  disrespectful because I’m a woman.”

 BMOC:   College of the Holy Cross is welcoming back one of its most athletically inclined alum,  Bob Cousy. The 90-year-old basketball legend, who also happens to be in HC’s Varsity Club Hall of Fame, is returning to the Worcester campus next week for a chat with author and acclaimed historian Gary Pomerantz    . The hour-long discussion, which coincides with the release of  Pomerantz’s new book “The Last Pass: Cousy, Russell, the Celtics,  and What Matters in the End,” will cover Couz’s celebrated point  guard career — from his time on the college court to his six-championship run with the Celtics    — as well as the team dynamics during the Celts’ dynasty years. The duo will be taking the stage at Holy Cross’ Seelos Theater on Oct. 26 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
