Happy Baseball Birthday! Miguel Cabrera

As we prepare ourselves for today's Detroit Tigers game against the Baltimore Orioles we send out Happy Baseball Birthday! wishes to the great Miguel Cabrera, born 35 years ago in Maracay, Venezuela.

Miggy is in his 11th season wearing the Olde English D, and with every at bat, hit, home run, he takes one step closer to re writing the Tigers record book.

Miggy has 1,806 hits, 325 homers, and 1,099 RBI, with a .318 batting average playing in Detroit.

Miggy sits just 37 home runs away from 500 in his career, and needs just 352 base hits to the magical 3,000 plateau.

Let's hope Miggy adds to those numbers today against the Birds.

Happy Baseball Birthday! MIGGY!

My Jackie Robinson Day on Topps BUNT

I entered the Jackie Robinson Day contest on Topps BUNT yesterday, and although I only finished 1,313, (out of 6,212 total players) I was rewarded with a cool card of the Brooklyn Dodgers HOF shortstop.

If I could've scored just 314 more points...I blame the horrible weather that cancelled games all over the Midwest... I would've been in the top 1,000 players, and gotten a "better" card, but I'm happy with the fact that I was able to add a card of Jackie Robinson to my digital  card collection.

If you're on Topps BUNT, give me a follow...maybe we can make some trades, I'm logged on everyday, just look for FREEHANFAN11. 

Although my Detroit Tigers were rained out of a doubleheader yesterday, I enjoyed watching baseball on TV, especially the battle between Bartolo Colon and Justin Verlander on Sunday Night Baseball.

I hope you all had a great weekend, thanks for reading, I appreciate it.

Play Ball! ⚾️
