“It means a lot. Not only for me, but the people around me: my teammates, the organization of Detroit, my coaches, the managers I’ve had for my whole career, the people from Venezuela, my family. It’s really big because it’s something special for my country, for my family to be able to do this. I’m really happy.”
– Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers

Yesterday in Toronto, Miguel Cabrera launched a 500-foot homerun over the scoreboard & entered the MLB record books as the 28th player to hit 500 homers. The Freep has compiled some notable facts from Cabrera’s first dinger way back in 2003 to the 500th home run on Sunday. Congratulations Miggy!
