It hasn’t been a fun season for the Detroit Tigers, even after all the moves that were made in the offseason that seemingly improved the ballclub.
But for future Hall-of-Famer Miguel Cabrera, things have been humming along just fine.
He is hitting .290 on the season with three home runs and 32 RBI.
The 39-year-old is enjoying a productive season in which he has been selected to yet another All-Star Game.
But with each hit he picks up, he’s making history.
An RBI double in the top of the fifth inning last night against the Kansas City Royals put him in some historic company.
The Tigers tweeted the highlight and what he accomplished with that hit.
Two Miggy Milestones on one swing:

Miggy Makes More History
Cabrera keeps climbing the all-time lists.
He also did that on just one swing, as Javier Baez scored from second.
Cabrera doesn’t stop making history.
Even at 39 years old, Cabrera is still a machine at the plate who can easily come through in the clutch and provide a spark for the Tigers.
The Tigers may be 36-51, but that hasn’t stopped Cabrera from staying locked in and getting the job done when his number is called.
He’s still one of the best pure hitters and run producers in the game of baseball today.
To him, age is nothing but a number, and that’s why he keeps moving up in the record books.
Now, he’s an All-Star again, and we’ll see what he can accomplish in Los Angeles next week.NEXT: Tigers Manager Comments On Latest Miguel Cabrera News
