The 3095th hit in total…’Hand taste’ ending the first pinch hit of an active legend
Veteran legend Miguel Cabrera (40, Detroit Tigers) saw a thrilling ‘taste’.
Cabrera played as a pinch hitter at the end of the 11th inning of a 6-6 home game against the San Francisco Giants held at Comerica Park, Michigan, USA on the 16th (Korean time) and claimed to be a solver. From third base safely, he hit the 93.2 mile (150 km/h) sinker on the fifth pitch of Taylor Rogers, left hand of the San Francisco bullpen, and hit the final hit toward the center fielder.
According to MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), the hit that day was the 3095th hit and the 16th ending hit in Cabrera’s personal career. As long as he has been active as a built-in starter, he did not have many pinch hitters (28 times in total), and he roared with his first individual pinch hit finish in the game against San Francisco. Congratulated by his fellow players, Cabrera chuckled, “It feels good.”메이저사이트
Cabrera is a legend who is likely to enter the Hall of Fame after retirement. He has played 2708 games in his career (21 years) in the big leagues, with a batting average of 0.308 (3095 hits in 10,000 52 at-bats), 507 homers and 1850 RBIs. He ranks first in most indicators of offense, including the most hits, homers, and doubles by an active player. He is on a “long run” to the extent that he even ranks first in strikeouts (2039).
The footprints he left are extraordinary, such as being the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) 2 times, being selected as an All-Star 12 times, batting champion 4 times, and Silver Slugger 7 times. But this season, the ups and downs were severe. Prior to the game on the 16th, the batting average for the season was only 0.207 (6 hits in 29 at-bats), and the voice of concern about the aging curve (a phenomenon that leads to a decrease in athletic ability after reaching a certain age and a decline in skills) grew, but it was a personal first pinch hit to finish. He showed off his solidity.
