Miguel and his Triple Crown Performance

2012 has had an excellent wrap-up to the regular baseball season. There were 2 Division winners decided on the final game of the season (congrats to the Yanks and A’s). Probably the most significant event was that baseball has its first Triple Crown winner in 45 years – Detroit Tiger Miguel Cabrera. The Triple Crown (highest batting average, most home runs and most runs batted in), is the most impressive and challenging milestone a hitter can ever achieve. Venezuela-native Cabrera is also the first Latino to win the award, boasting a masterful 44 home runs, 139 runs batted in and a .330 batting average. In addition, Cabrera could have sat out the final game of the season to ensure that he wouldn’t risk his league-leading batting average; however, he played right to the end because it was the right and respectable thing to do. Congratulations, Miguel Cabrera, on your excellent feat and winning it the right way!
