Miguel Cabrera gets his 2,000th hit with monster home run (Video)

On Friday afternoon, Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera hit a new career milestone when he smashed a two-run home in the eight inning of the team’s 10-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Comerica Park.

With the home run, Cabrera became just the fifth player in Major League Baseball history with 2,000 hits, 300 home runs and 1,200 RBI in his first 12 seasons.

You can watch the video of Cabrera’s big hit below:

Cabrera also became the ninth player to reach 2,000 hits before the age of 31. The other players to reach that milestone are Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Mel Ott, Hank Aaron, Joe Medwick, Jimmie Foxx, Robin Young and Alex Rodriguez.

That’s pretty great company to keep.
