The Detroit Tigers’ veteran slugger made history.
He’s been at this for a long time and continues to show how dangerous of a hitter he can truly be.
But Miggy isn’t done making history, and he won’t be anytime soon.
He still knows how to hit and is a threat every time he steps in the box.
On Sunday, Cabrera hit his first homer of the 2022 season.
With that homer, he tied George Brett with 1,119 career extra-base hits, the 18th most in baseball history.

History In The Making
It seems like every hit Cabrera picks up makes a little history.
That just shows how good he is and the dedication that it took for him to be this good.
He may not be what he used to be, but he’s still got it.
In 66 at-bats this season, he is hitting .258 with 7 RBI and a .648 OPS.
At this point, he’s making history every time he does something good.
He is still a fearsome hitter with a professional approach and somebody you do not want to leave a pitch hanging to.
Soon, he’ll continue to climb some other leaderboards and make more history.
The 39-year-old is not done showing the baseball world what he can do, even at his advanced age.
We’ll see how long it takes him to climb the next leaderboard and reach some more important milestones.
Even with 3,000 hits out of the way, there’s more on Cabrera’s bucket list and he will stop at nothing to accomplish more.
