Found September 28, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
After receiving one of the loudest ovations any player outside of Jose Fernandez has received this season at Marlins Park he responded by going 2 for 3 and tipped his helmet to the crowd when he was taken out for a pinch-runner. Never mind that he no longer plays for the home team. They still adore Miguel Cabrera in South Florida. Cabrera playing his first game in South Florida against the Marlins since they traded him to Detroit in 2007 couldn’t lift the first-place Tigers to a victory over the last-place Marlins.
