It's a testament to his selflessness and dedication to the game, and it could inspire his teammates to perform at an even higher level.
“I don't want attention,” Cabrera told reporters on Monday. “I don't want any distractions for our team. I look forward beating (other teams). If they're going to give me something, they've already given me a lot of hits. That's enough for me.”
“I look forward to enjoying this season and trying to help young guys, and trying to help our team to win more games. That's my focus this year. I don't want any distractions. I don't want any videos or any stuff. I want to do my job. That's it.”
