The Thrill of the Game!

Every young baseball player dreams of being a major league superstar.  Watching these real-life baseball stories unfold is what makes the game so exciting.

Right now, there is a rare MLB accomplishment on the brink of reality.  My hometown team, the Detroit Tigers’ first baseman/designated hitter, Miguel Cabrera is one hit away from joining a rare group of superstars.  Today, with 2999 career hits, “Miggy is one hit away from being only the 7th MLB player in history to reach 3000 hits and have hit over 500 home runs.

Miggy will be the first Detroit Tiger player to reach 3000 career hits since Al Kaline reached the milestone on July 17, 1974.  He will be the first MLB player to reach 3000 hits since 2018 when Albert Pujols joined the 3000-hit club.  Cabrera will be only the 33rd MLB player to reach this amazing milestone.

This is a rare accomplishment in the baseball world and exciting for young players (and all baseball fans) to watch.

Baseball has so many exciting accomplishments to observe and cheer.  Join the fun, enjoy the thrill of the game.

Talk about thrills! 
For this then 11 year old, it truly was a memorable day.
