We all know Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera is one of the best hitters in baseball, but during Thursday's game against the New York Yankees he proved he has the "ups" to make it in the NBA.
Cabrera, batting in the bottom of the 1st inning, took a 0-2 pitch high from Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda. The ball deflected off the top of catcher Chris Stewart's glove and lined into
the upper padding of the Comerica Park backstop, popping it up in the air. Stewart was settling himself under the dead, foul-ball pop-up when Cabrera jumped and snatched it above Stewart's reaching glove.
"Miggy got some hops," exclaimed Tigers color analyst Rod Allen.
The next pitch Cabrera reminded everybody that he is a baseball player first by singling between third and short.
