After Cabrera got out in the bottom of the seventh inning, he was seen in the dugout talking with manager A.J. Hinch, who was probably letting him know that he would be playing first base in the bottom of the inning. Well, that is exactly what happened, and you will not believe what happened next.

Take a look as the first batter of the inning, Steven Kwan immediately hits a ground ball to Miggy, who makes the Hollywood ending play. As you will see in the videos below, as soon as Cabrera made the play, Hinch made the decision to have Miggy’s family help remove him from his final game.
