This Tigers fan looks just like Justin Verlander

It looks like Justin Verlander found his doppelgänger Wednesday night in Arizona when the Tigers took on the Diamondbacks.

During Wednesday night's broadcast in Phoenix, the Fox Sports Detroit crew spotted a guy who resembles a certain someone that we're all pretty familiar with in the Motor City.

The fan, Chris Azanger, told FSD reporter John Keating that people think he is Verlander if he ever goes home to visit Detroit and attends a Tigers game.

"I had people sitting around me asking why I'm sitting up in the stands and not in the bullpin or something like that."

Here's another photo of Azanger that shows off his Verlander-like features.
