Miguel finishes the season with a .330 average, 44 home runs, and 139 RBIs! He is the 17th player in MLB history to do this, and the 2nd Tiger to ever do it. And according to Tigers.com, Miguel is still trying to come to realization that this REALLY happened to him!
“Unbelievable,” Cabrera said. “I don’t believe this happened right now. I didn’t believe three weeks ago it was going to happen. I didn’t believe this was possible. But you always dream. Thank God I got an opportunity for this dream to come true.”
