The Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera, emblem of the Detroit Tigers, connected on Tuesday night his unstoppable 3.010 lifetime in the Major Leagues (MLB, for its acronym in English).
In the bottom of the 9th. inning, in the second of a Detroit-Oakland doubleheader, Cabrera, 39, shook off Lou Trivino, closer for the Californian team, his 23rd hit of 2022.

Thanks to that single towards right field, Miggy equaled Wade Boggs, a member of the Hall of Fame, in the 30th position of players with more uncatchable in the history of the MLB.
Once he surpasses the remembered "Come pollo", the pride of La Pedrera, Aragua state, will have as his next challenge the 3.020 hits of Cuban Rafael Palmeiro.
So far in 2022, "El Tigre Mayor" has already reached two important milestones in his career: 3.000 hits and 600 doubles.
