Miguel Cabrera, “Miggy” as he’s called, is one of the greatest right-handed hitters in the game of baseball–possibly of all-time. His swing is quite simply a beautiful thing to behold. And best of all, he seems like a large kid when he’s on the diamond. We should all be quite thankful we have been afforded the opportunity to see one of the greats play for our team. And, the best part of all, he’s not done yet!
Here are the top 15 moments of Miguel’s career in Motown. He’ll be adding to the list this year, I’m sure.

There is no doubt that Tigers fans have been treated to a great set of highlights from Miggy. These fifteen merely scratch the surface, but yet, are still pretty awesome. Here’s to a few more years of greatness from the big man, and hopefully a World Series Title for the Tigers — before he enters Cooperstown, most likely on the first ballot. That smile we’ve grown to love emblazoned on his Hall of Fame bust for all-time.
