Miguel Cabrera Rewards Aggro Indians Fan with Bat and Gloves (Video)
While overly enthusiastic fans (especially opposing ones) can be fun to watch (just look at that pic above), they have to be grating on the players themselves. However, Miguel Cabrera was able to take some pretty funny heckling all in stride, as a young Indians fan tore the Tigers star a new one from the first baseline.
Cabrera’s reaction? A laugh, and some free swag for the fan.
The player walked over and gave the kid his batting gloves and bat. I’m not sure if giving a fan that looks like the above picture a bat is a great idea, but that’s just a thought.
Here’s the video. It’s a little unbelievable that it didn’t end with Miguel Cabrera strangling this kid.
AND he got a ball. This might be the best day ever for this overly-emotional Indians fan.
