Alright, my friends and followers….I began this little blurb before I became sick and felt like staying in bed for the rest of my life. That being said, please note that Cabrera did NOT turn 31-years-old yesterday. However, our Triple Crown Winner came back with a vengeance during last night’s game against the Tiger’s division rivals, the Chicago White Sox. Miggy went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and a 2-run home run. His double went into right center field gap and his homer went into the seats in right field. I continue to hear, “Miggy’s back” but folks, did the man ever REALLY leave? Nah, he did not leave the building, however, the man’s ability to send a baseball out of any MLB stadium will continue to amaze us.
My family and close friends know I find Miguel “Miggy” Cabrera absolutely fascinating as a one of baseball’s most talented players, ever. In honor of his amazing abilities as an athlete and incredibly sharp baseball mind, as well as him turning 31-years-old, I thought I would share this photo which compares Miguel to Hank Aaron. I mean, wow, I’d say both men are in good company?
Anyways, I am in the middle of raking leaves (blah) and felt motivated to complete this during my quick break. Time to throw my Detroit Tigers sweatshirt back on and finish the yard before I watch Cabrera go yard tonight at Comerica. Yeah, I know…but his love of the game, his ability, his baseball smarts, his sense of humor…we get to watch this baseball player in action and I count it a privilege.
A somewhat-related trivia regarding Miguel: Did you know he wears two different cleats, one for home games and one for away games? And if you do, could you identify them? (And yes, yes I can but I was curious if others pay attention to this type of thing). I am tomboy yes, but I do appreciate coordinating outfits and style as well!
