Today I am going to be sharing my favorite Detroit sports moment (that I have seen in person). I have been to many Detroit sports games, including Tigers, Lions, Pistons, Red Wings, and Detroit City FC. But there was one moment that was my favorite.
It was the 2012 World Series, and it was the Tigers vs. the Giants. The Giants were leading 3-0 in the series, and then I got surprised when my dad got tickets to Game 4. The seats were in Section 343, and everyone was screaming the entire game. In the 3rd inning, Miguel Cabrera was up to bat. Cabrera hit a high fly ball off the Giants starter Matt Cain, and the ball carried into the right field seats. Hunter Pence had a chance to catch it, but a strong wind pushed it out of the park.
The reason I love this moment is that it was the first time I had seen Miguel Cabrera play. I didn’t know it then, but Cabrera is one of the best hitters in baseball history. And to see him hit a home run in the World Series was special. He was the first player whose jersey I got, and he is still my favorite player.
