Miguel Cabrera trips at third base, tips cap (Video)
Miguel Cabrera certainly has the flare of an entertainer, even when he’s not hitting home runs.
The Detroit Tigers third baseman took his eye off the bag as he was heading to third base on a fielder’s choice by Don Kelly in the fourth inning of the Tigers’ 10-3 win over the Cleveland Indians, and he tripped on the base. Cabrera went down the ground and, after realizing his blunder garnered some embarrassing attention, he tipped his helmet to the Cleveland crowd.
Cabrera’s teammates were watching from the dugout when it happened, and they instantly began razzing him. Torii Hunter and Prince Fielder had great reactions:
Cabrera seemed to be out-of-sorts after tripping, but he made sure to give his teammates the thumbs up to show that he was OK:
Cabrera went 1-for-3 with 3 RBIs, two walks, and one fall in the game.
