Miguel Cabrera Hits Home Run Into Rays Touch Tank At Tropicana Field – VIDEO
Check out this video, of Detroit third baseman hitting a long home run, into the Rays Touch Tank, during the Tigers’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays, on Sunday, at Tropicana Field.
The long bomb, which came in the fourth inning, off of Tampa Bay pitcher Jeremy Hellickson, was the 25th of the year for Cabrera, who leads the American League in both batting average and RBI’s.
Cabrera, who became Major League Baseball’s first Triple Crown winner since 1967 a season ago, becomes only the second player to hit a homer into the tank, joining Luis Gonzalez, who got the ball wet wet back in 2007.
The tank, which holds 10,000 of water, and is 35-feet long, was opened in 2006.
Despite the efforts of Cabrera, who is now hitting a .371, with 25 home runs, and 82 RBI’s, the Tigers lost, 3-1.
