Miguel Cabrera’s son is going viral this week after social media clips showed the 11-year-old absolutely smashing a baseball. Like father, like son.
The elder Cabrera is a member of the 500 home run club, having twice led the league in long balls. Miggy’s spent time with both the Marlins and Tigers throughout a career that’s spanned two decades.
He’s won a pair of MVP awards while landing a World Series title in 2003. Now, though, he finds himself in the final phase of his career as he plans on retiring after the 2023 campaign.
While Miguel Cabrera may be staring his imminent retirement in the face, his son is now giving viewers a chance to see the next generation of family stars.
Christopher Cabrera was seen crushing baseballs in a recent 11 and under tournament. Clips of the performance have now gone viral, causing quite the reaction from viewers.
