Story of the Night: Miguel Cabrera hits his 500th career home run

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera may be spending his 19th season in Major League Baseball with a non-contending team but he is the veteran leader of a young team while also chasing some milestones. Saturday, Cabrera knocked off another milestone with his home run in the sixth inning of a 5-2 extra-innings Tigers’ win over the Blue Jays. It was not just his 13th of the season but his 500th career home run.

Sunday’s home run off the bat of Cabrera makes him the 28th MLB player to reach 500 career home runs.
