It seems like Miguel Cabrera can do no wrong these days. Whether he's mystifying teammate Austin Jackson or donning Zubaz in the clubhouse, the two-time reigning American League MVP has it going. Sunday night at Fenway Park, he made one particular fan's night.
As Miggy strode to the on-deck circle in the fifth inning of an eventual 6-2 Detroit victory over Boston, a young man stormed down the aisle and extended his hand for the 2012 Triple Crown winner to shake. You rarely see players interrupt their in-game routine — but that's exactly what Cabrera did. And the kid coudn't have been happier.
Atta boy, Roy!
Moving to the NBA, Roy Hibbert scored 19 points and grabbed nine rebounds as the Indiana Pacers beat the Miami Heat 107-96 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. It's the first time in this year's playoffs the Pacers won the first game of a series.
Finally in golf, Padraig Harrington nearly eagled the par-4 11th hole in the final round of the Byron Nelson Championship. But his approach bounced in — then out — of the hole and the three-time Major winner had to settle for a birdie.
