Miguel Cabrera will get to Chase History

Miguel Cabrera will get to Chase History

Oct 3, 2012

Detroit Tigers Triple-Crown chaser, Miguel Cabrera, will start the final two games of the regular season at third base, this according to Tigers manager Jim Leyland.

Wonderful news for all baseball fans considering this news comes just one day after the Tigers locked up the AL Central crown for the second straight year.

Cabrera is chasing the first Triple-Crown since 1967 (45 years) when Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski achieved the amazing feat.

Cabrera is currently leading the AL in all three major batting categories with a .329 batting average, 44 homers, and 137 RBI.

If Cabrera wins the Triple-Crown (and he most likely will) it will be the first such accomplishment in the modern era of fantasy baseball. Not to mention probably one of the greatest achievements many younger sports fans will have ever witnessed.
