Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera played his last season in MLB in 2023, being honored in all the stadiums he visited for a career that will take him to the Hall of Fame. 'Miggy' is considered one of the best Latin hitters of all time and enjoys the respect of everyone in the Major Leagues. Hardly any other Venezuelan player could have two MVPs, seven Silver Sluggers, four batting titles, the 2003 World Series ring, and a Triple Crown on his record. Cabrera is also a symbol of improvement since he overcame countless injuries to remain in the elite and active for 21 years.

What we’ll remember about this fandom a decade from now

When Miguel Cabrera is part of the Hall of Fame in less than a decade, his 2023 season will be remembered as the one in which he said goodbye as a player on a tour in which he received tributes from all MLB teams and his family — especially his sons — honored him in his last game at Comerica Park. 'Miggy's' sporting legacy will be even more important in a decade when very few have his numbers in the major leagues.
