A remarkable journey for Miguel Cabrera

Cabrera's remarkable journey as a professional baseball player has been a joy to behold for fans across the league. From his early days with the Florida Marlins to his current tenure with the Tigers, Cabrera has consistently displayed an unmatched level of skill, determination, and passion for the game. The 40-year-old veteran has been a pillar of consistency and excellence throughout his career, and his latest accomplishment only adds to his glowing legacy.

Miggy is heating up

Through May 27, Cabrera was hitting just .169 on the season. Since then, he has caught fire and he is now batting .444 in his past nine games (through his first at-bat on Thursday night). Despite Cabrera heating up at the plate, the Tigers just continue to lose baseball games. After getting to within gae of .500 not too long ago, the Tigers have been losing like it's their job and they are now sitting at 27-39 on the season.
