Miguel Cabrera has one of the better personalities on the baseball field.
You will see him talking with every player who steps on first base, joshing with his teammates on social media and in the locker room, even making humorous videos.
But here’s something new: During the Tigers and A’s game Tuesday night Miggy tried to pull off a trick.
In the first inning, David Price threw over to first base, Cabrera caught the ball, but acted as if the ball had gotten by him.
It didn’t. Billy Burns, who was the runner at first, didn’t fall for the fake. Cabrera then bowed to the crowd.
This play was made famous in the 1994 film ‘Little Big League’.
You have to give Cabrera credit for trying.
