Over the weekend, Miguel Cabrera spoke to Christina De Nicola of MLB.com before his annual charity event and said that 2023 would be his final season in baseball. The news broke per a tweet by Jason Beck of MLB.com.

The Miggy Foundation Event

Cabrera earlier this season he would like to work with the Tigers in some capacity and mentioned that again over the weekend.

2023 is the final year of his contract, in which he is set to earn $32 million dollars. Miguel has accomplished so much, while wearing the Old English D.

  • First player to hit their 500th career home run while wearing a Detroit Tigers uniform
  • He is one of three players in the 3,000 hit and 500 home run club to have a batting average of .300 (Hank Aaron, Willie Mays) and one of just two players to have 600 doubles (Aaron was the other)
  • Cabrera in 2012 became the first player to hit for the Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.  He hit .330 with 44 home runs and drove in 139. That season was the first of back-to-back MVPs.
  • He was the 33rd player in MLB history to have over 3,000 hits. He hit his 3,000 on April 23rd against the Rockies.

Even the greatest Tigers player in history, Al Kaline, said ‘Miguel Cabrera is the best hitter I’ve ever seen, by far’  back in 2013. So get ready for the Miguel Cabrera tour, similar to what Hall-of-Famer closer Mariano Rivera experienced when he retired.
