Kate Upton is no stranger to Sports Illustrated—the blonde beauty has graced the cover of the notorious swimsuit issue twice now—but her latest cover for the sports mag is unlike any others!

Why you may ask? Because Kate is the first swimsuit model to appear on any issue non-swimsuit, weekly issue of the classic publication!

The 21-year-old supermodel appeared alongside Atlanta Braves players and brother BJ and Justin Upton (no relation to Kate!) for the magazine’s annual post-season baseball preview.

The Upton family photo shoot took place last month, at Citi Field, when the Braves faced off against the Mets.

Kate is currently in Paris for Paris Fashion Week.
