In November 2017, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander and his wife Kate Upton appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and recalled the missing their wedding because of Game 7 of the World Series.

Justin Verlander played for the Detroit Tigers in first part of the 2017 MLB Season. However, the Tigers traded him to the Houston Astros before the trade deadline.

Kate and Justin's marriage had been planned long before. Their wedding day coincided with the date Game 7 was to be played. The pair didn't expect the Detroit Tigers, Justin's former team, to play in the World Series and, thus, mutually fixed the date. Little did they know that Verlander would be traded to Houston, and their plans would be ruined.

On "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Kate said:

"We planned the wedding before… obviously, he was traded, and we've been planning this thing."

Verlander continued:

"We were planning this thing saying 'you know, if best case scenario we go to the World Series, there's really only one thing that could throw a huge wrench into all of our plans. It's not the World Series, it's going to Game 7 of the World Series."

Upton interjected:

"And guess where we went! Everybody's in Italy. Everyone's at the venue. We had an event that night and everyone's texting us like "your wedding is so pretty! Wish you were here!"
