“Once a Tiger, always a Tiger.”
On the 30th (Korean time), Major League Baseball’s official website ‘MLB.com’ said, “Miguel Cabrera will end his career as a player this weekend, but he is already looking ahead to next season. The Detroit Tigers will support Cabrera, a former Triple Crown winner and two-time MVP. “We have appointed Scott Harris as special assistant to the Director of Baseball Operations,” he said. “He will assume that role after the end of the season.”바카라
“Cabrera exemplifies what it means to be a Tiger, and we are grateful for 16 great seasons in Detroit,” Detroit Chairman and CEO Chris Ilich said in a statement. “Cabrera’s historic career makes him one of the greatest Detroiters in franchise history. “He was a great teammate and loved by the fans. I’m happy that our relationship can continue in the next chapter of Cabrera’s life.”
“I want to stay on this team and help. I want to do something. I don’t want to be a coach,” Cabrera said a few weeks ago, according to MLB.com. “I want to be around these guys. They’re special people and they’re growing.” “They’re maturing. I think they’ll be better next year,” he said.
“I hope he can teach our players,” Harris said. “I’m honored to have Cabrera on our staff. Even though he is in a new role, I know he will continue to build Detroit well.”
Cabrera made his big league debut with the Florida Marlins (now Miami) in June 2003. He subsequently signed a contract with Detroit ahead of the 2008 season and has played for Detroit ever since.
Cabrera’s career records are 3,170 hits, 511 home runs, 1,880 RBI, 1,550 runs, a batting average of 0.306, and an OPS of 0.900. Cabrera’s brightest moment was 10 years ago. Cabrera led the American League in batting average, home runs, and RBI in the 2012 season with 205 hits, 44 home runs, 139 RBI, 109 runs, a batting average of 0.330, and an OPS of 0.999.
