The month of May has belonged to Miguel Cabrera and, on Sunday night, the Detroit Tigers’ slugger paused in the midst of a game to share some joy with a fan at Fenway Park.
As Cabrera walked to the on-deck circle in the fifth inning, a young fan ran down the aisle and stuck out his hand for a handshake. And Cabrera did what athletes in the moment of competition rarely do: he stopped and shook the kid’s hand.
Of course, it’s easy to be so laid back when you’re playing the way the two-time American League MVP is playing.
Miguel Cabrera in May: .375 avg. (24-for-64), a 1.112 OPS, 24 RBI. Victor Martinez in May: .375 avg. (24-for-64), a 1.179 OPS, 12 RBI.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) May 19, 2014
