Baseball season is officially here, and Kate Upton is ready for it. The three-time SI Swimsuit Issue cover model shared a collage of Instagram photos from a recent Mets game, in which she and her daughter, Genevieve, were captured cheering on Justin Verlander. 

The first photo showed the mother-daughter duo from the back as they faced the baseball field. Upton wore a Mets varsity-style jacket and matching backward baseball cap, while her mini-me rocked a sporty jacket with a Mets patch on the sleeve.

The two embraced in an additional photo, while the last image showed Upton working a raffle event at a merch counter.

“We’re having so much fun in NY …GO METS! 💙🧡,” Upton wrote in her caption.

While plenty of the model’s 6.5 million followers shared their love of the game, others expressed how much they miss Upton and Verlander in Houston.

The family relocated to New York from Texas after Verlande signed a two-year, $86 million deal with the Mets last December.

“LGM!! 🙌🧡💙,” the official Mets IG account commented.

“Queen of Queens, you were made for this city! #LFGM,” someone else added.

“How does one get this jacket 😭,” one person inquired.

“You are hurting my heart!!! #GoStros,” another fan wrote.

“Houston misses you guys,” one follower stated simply.
