It’s another special milestone for Miguel Cabrera…
The 33-year-old Venezuelan professional baseball player, a first baseman for the Detroit Tigers, singled in the third inning of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Indians for the 2,500th hit of his career.
Cabrera, a two-time American League Most Valuable Player, became the 100th player in Major League Baseball history to reach the milestone with his line drive off Indians starter Trevor Bauer.
Cabrera, an 11-time MLB All-Star, was hit on the left hand by a pitch in the first inning but remained in the game after being checked by a team trainer.
In 2012, Cabrera became the first player since 1967 to win the batting Triple Crown, leading the AL with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs, and 139 RBI, earning him the AL MVP award that year.
In 2013 Cabrera improved on the previous year’s batting performance, including a career-high .348 batting average, and received another AL MVP award.
