Photo: Miguel Cabrera literally flattens a baseball upon contact

There's a reason why last year Miguel Cabrera took home baseball's first Triple Crown in decades and is threatening to do so once again. He flattens baseballs, enough said.

Photographic Evidence That Miguel Cabrera Is An Absolute Freak Of Nature

It may just be me, but I thought that baseballs were not supposed to be able to be flattened like this. You have to love the phantom camera when it produces images like this.

Miguel Cabrera Shown Flattening Baseball in Slow-Motion Replay of Home Run (Photo)

We’ve heard of tearing the cover off a baseball, but flattening one? That’s new. Miguel Cabrera hit a home run so hard on Sunday that when the ball made contact with the bat, it flattened. The ball traveled 412 feet and came off the bat at 104.4 mph, according to hittrackeronline.com. This is likely not the first time Cabrera, nor any other MLB player, has flattened a baseball...

By the numbers: Hack Wilson and Miguel Cabrera

Prince Fielder turns one of the strangest double plays ever

In the bottom of the 5th inning, with a massive 7-1, Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder turned an incredibly strange double play.  Cleveland Indians outfielder Drew Stubbs hit a blooper to Prince, which he dropped.  The ball was still in fair territory, but base runner Lonnie Chisenhall didn’t run.  Prince casually walked over to Chisenhall, tagged him on the leg and...

Breaking Down the Season’s Most Unlikely Double Steal

Some years ago, when they were up-and-coming instead of bad, Yuniesky Betancourt and Jose Lopez were both Seattle Mariners. The Mariners are well known for their advertising campaigns, and in one they pitched Betancourt and Lopez as the “double play twins,” middle infielders who did everything together, both on and off the field. Betancourt and Lopez, at the time, had a lot in...

Indians look to rebound vs Tigers

Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera are two big reasons the Detroit Tigers have dominated the Cleveland Indians this season.

Game 2013.88: Tigers at Indians

Detroit Tigers: 48-39, 1st Place (2.5 ahead of Cleveland).  Well the Tigers made what looked like a potential blowout game interesting, only to have a bullpen fail that left them a few runs short. The 11 runners left on base didn’t help, former Indian Jhonny Peralta being the biggest offender (6). At any rate, the Tigers still have an 8-3 lead in the season series, and have a...
