My favorite Detroit Tigers hitter is Miguel Cabrera. He stands 6’4 and weights 249 lbs. He is the Detroit Tigers first baseman/designated hitter. He was born in Maracay, Venezuela on April 18th, 1983. He bats and throws right-handed. Cabrera started his career with the Miami Marlins in 2003. In his rookie year he played in 87 games, hit .268, with 12 home runs and 62 RBI’s. Cabrera would go on to become one of the prime power hitters in the game of baseball today, winning the MLB batting triple crown in 2012 by hitting .330, with 44 home runs and 139 RBI’s.
