Figures are still at the order of Miguel Cabrera

The Maracayero bested Cal Ripken Jr. in the doubles department

The tiger of Aragua and Detroit, Miguel Cabrera, continues to accumulate historical figures with each hit he hits in the "Big Tent" and that of course brings him closer to the Hall of Fame.

Last Saturday was one more case in his brilliant career in the Major Leagues, hitting a couple of hits in five at-bats against Texas; including his career double 604 to beat Cal Ripken Jr; the “Iron Man” of the Baltimore Orioles, and to be alone in the 16th position of all time in this line.

However, with this number of two-pad hits, «Miggy» came within one of equaling Paul Waner and Paul Molitor, who connected 605 biangulars in 20 and 21 seasons in the Major Leagues, respectively.

Likewise, Miguel Cabrera has 3.047 hits, only six away from tying the Panamanian Rod Carew; but seven short of overtaking Rickey Henderson for 25th all-time, and becoming just one of 17 players in the top-25 of career hits and doubles, but only fifth in the top-25 of these two departments plus homers.

Although making the caveat that in the future more players can reach these figures, leaving Cabrera behind on the lists.

These would only be a few more edges in an already brilliant career of the Maracay player in the best baseball in the world; and that he will surely receive five years after his retirement, he will receive the blessing of the voters to be exalted to the temple of the immortals.
