Detroit Tigers future HOF First baseman Miguel Cabrera has been in a hole as late, noticeably distraught if you will. And rightfully so, With the Violence erupting on a daily basis and at an all time high in Miggy’s Native country of Venezuela. Has Cabrera worried sick for his families lives, most disturbing receiving threats and having to pay people off to keep his mother from being kidnapped.
According to ESPN Miguel Cabrera posted some videos to his Instagram account, of the violence back home in Venezuela but later took them down. Most notably expressing the concern not only for his families safety but his own life is being threatened if he even thinks about going back to the war torn Venezuela to help or protect his family. This to me is absolutely shocking as we all well know Miggy would probably give you the shirt off of his back.
Since coming to MLB Miguel Cabrera has always been very active in the communities in and around the city of Detroit and always donates his time and money with that worry free playful smile we all have grown to love and respect. Miggy has always throughout his MLB career donated food and much needed medical supplies , and money to his hometown in Venezuela. Unfortunately Miguel Cabrera isn’t the only MLB player with family in the middle of the chaos.
From Everyone at MichSportsNetwork Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Miguel Cabrera and his family for their lives and their safety. Most importantly Peace in home country of Venezuela.
