Ben Verlander has no wife but is in a relationship with his girlfriend, Pamela. The FOX Sports analyst and the Twitch streamer celebrated their second anniversary in September.
Ben and his girlfriend Pamela have always tried to keep their relationship low-key. But the sports analyst has been asked by his fans whether he has any intention to pop the big question to his girlfriend anytime soon.
Before joining FOX Sports in 2021, Ben was a former baseball player and tried to follow in the footsteps of his famous brother Justin Verlander, the Houston Astros starting pitcher.
Currently, both the Verlander brother are rather busy, with one analyzing the World Series Game and the other playing his fifth final and in the quest of winning his second World Series title.

Ben Verlander Brother – Meet Justin Verlander The Houston Astros Starting Pitcher
Ben Verlander has a famous brother, Justin Verlander. The siblings were born and raised in Manakin-Sabot, Virginia, and have experienced two different baseball careers.
Justin Verlander, who is nine years older than his little brother, Ben, was the second overall pick in the 2004 MLB draft. The veteran of the game, Justin made his debut for the Detroit Tigers in 2005 and went on to play for them for 12 years before switching alliances with Houston Astros in 2017.
And in his very first year with the Astros, Justin went on to win the World Series and was also crowned the co-winner of the Babe Ruth Award. Though there have been talks surrounding his retirement, the pitcher said he is nowhere near to being done.
Speaking to New York Times earlier this year in 2022, Justin said that he wants to earn 300 career wins before he retires. The pitcher had two seasons completely wiped off due to the pandemic and Tommy John surgery and currently has 244 wins in his career.
Justin has already won Cy Young Award twice in his career and looks to win his third this year. Known by many as the greatest pitcher of his generation, Justin is currently facing the Phillies in his fifth World Series.
In 2021, Ben was the first one to break the news of Justin signing a new deal with the Houston Astros. And when Ben used this during an argument with another sports analyst Jeff Passan, he accused the younger Verlander of nepotism.
Ben Verlander Family – Meet His Parents Richard And Kathy Verlander
Ben Verlander comes from a family of baseball fans. And before Ben could reach adulthood, he had already seen his older brother Justin achieve all sorts of prizes in the sport known as the favorite time pass of Americans.
Richard Verlander, the father of Ben Verlander, is the former president of CWA Local 2201, and with his wife, Kathy, launched a book titled, “Rocks Across the Pond” in 2013.
The book documents the hows and whys they raised their older son Justin who became the legend of the game. Richard says the key to raising a champion son like Justin was that he never pushed him and let his son enjoy the development process.
The parents of the Verlander brothers were even awarded the George and Barbara Bush Little League Parents of the Year in 2008 for raising a son like Justin. Justin was not the best in his age group when he was 13-14. It was only during his time at Old Dominion University that he worked on his skills.
Ben followed in the footsteps of his brother and also joined Old Dominion University; unlike his brother, who was the second overall pick in the 2004 draft, Ben was a fourth-round pick.
Ben’s older brother Justin is a married man and tied the knot with the American model Kate Upton in 2017 and is a father to a daughter named Genevieve.
Ben is currently unmarried and is in a relationship with the host of Pam on the Pitch named Pamela. The two have been in a relationship for the past two years and seem to still be in the honeymoon phase of their romantic life.
Ben Verlander Net Worth
Ben Verlander has a net worth of $500,000. Unlike his brother Justin, Ben’s earnings stem from being an analyst at Fox News and host of the podcast called Flippin Bats.
Ben had signed a contract with the Detroit Tigers in 2013 after being picked in the 14th round. The younger Verlander brother never reached the success of his brother, Justin but did make noise during his university days with Old Dominion.
The former baseball player joined Fox News last year in 2021, and a year prior, he hosted FOX Sports 2020 World Series, which attracted more than 5.7 million viewers across platforms.
With Ben working hard to create his own identity as a sports analyst and trying to move away from the shadows of his older brother, he will probably never be able to reach the net worth that his brother has created.
Justin Verlander, the older brother of Ben Verlander, has a net worth of $150 million and signed a deal worth $50 million with the Houston Astros in December 2021.
