Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera is on his farewell tour.
He is retiring from MLB and has gotten dozens of gifts, donations to his foundation, and amazing gestures.
He is universally acclaimed as one of the best right-handed hitters of our generation.
The slugger is now playing in the final homestand of his career.
That means Detroit fans will get to say goodbye to a man that carried their offense since he arrived to the team in 2008 until 2016, his last truly outstanding season.
That’s nine years of truly elite performance in which he won two MVP awards, multiple batting titles, Silver Slugger awards, and took the Tigers to the 2012 World Series, which they lost.
Tigers fans have every reason to love Cabrera, and so does the team even though he has been a payroll liability over the last few years.
The organization put together a nice way to honor their king, per MLB Life.

The team has made a No. 24 with a crown design in the center field area.
Cabrera has worn No. 24 for nearly all of his career.
Except for being assigned No. 20 upon being called up by the Miami Marlins (then Florida Marlins) in 2003, Cabrera has used 24 in every other season of his career.
It’s the number he is most commonly associated with.
MLB, and the Tigers in particular, are probably gearing up for what it’s shaping up to be a very emotional weekend.
Hopefully, Cabrera gets a proper sendoff and the Tigers fans can show him love and admiration, as they have through the years.
