Miguel Cabrera Impersonates Jim Leyland And Shakira

By Ashley Dunkak

It is not every day one sees a Major League Baseball player impersonate the smoking of Jim Leyland and the hip-shaking of Shakira in the same interview.

In a hysterical discussion with the MLB Network’s Intentional Talk, superstar slugger Miguel Cabrera opened up on a variety of topics, laughing throughout the entire discussion.

Cabrera talked about how he would get himself out if he were a pitcher, his reaction to a Prince Fielder look-alike in the stands at Comerica Park, his post-homer handshake with Fielder and his approach going back to the dugout after tripping over third base.

“That was so funny, man,” Cabrera said, cracking up as he watched the video, “because I turn around and see my whole dugout’s laughing at me, and I go to the dugout and was trying to act cool … like, ‘Oh, my ankle is so sore right now,’ so everybody is trying to be serious so they don’t make fun of me. It was so funny.”

Cabrera also talked about his last big purchase – a yacht in Miami – and what players he watches take batting practice around the league.

He finishes off the interview by inviting both hosts to go fishing with him in the off-season.
