A two-hit game last night against the New York Yankees put him at 2,999.
Now, all he needs is one more hit to reach the historic milestone and become a member of the 3,000-hit club.
A milestone such as this is important for any player, but this morning, Cabrera spoke about what reaching 3,000 hits would mean to him.
Cabrera said that when he finally reaches the milestone, he’ll be thinking about his upbringing in Venezuela and how his uncle taught him to play the game.
He said he also wants the song “El Alma Llanera”, a sentimental Venezuelan song, to be played after he picks up his 3,000th career hit.

What 3,000 Means To Miggy
Obviously, 3,000 hits means a lot to Cabrera and when he reaches the milestone, it will be a special moment for him.
Every time a player reaches such a milestone, emotions of joy and excitement take over, and it will certainly be an emotional moment for Cabrera when he finally gets hit No. 3,000.
The 3,000-hit club is an all-exclusive club and to be a part of it is an amazing accomplishment.
Cabrera is sure to be a first ballot Hall-of-Famer when the time comes.
He’s certainly earned that right with everything he has accomplished.
He’s been a World Series champion, a two-time MVP, an 11-time All-Star, and a Triple Crown winner.
Today, he has a shot to make history in front of the fans in Detroit who love him so much for his many years of success.
