Miggy equaled Cal Ripken Jr. in doubles.

La Pedrera pride also tied Lou Whitaker within the Detroit organization

After several cold days with the wood, the Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera (Miggy), emblem of the Detroit Tigers, connected this Sunday his double 603 for life in the Major Leagues (MLB, for its acronym in English).

With his connection of two bases, the pride of La Pedrera, Aragua state, equaled Cal Ripken Jr., former Baltimore Orioles player and Hall of Famer, in 16th place on the historical doubles list.

Miggy shook the aforementioned hit in the first inning, after violently punishing a broken shipment from Shane Bieber, starter for the now Cleveland Guardians.
