Miguel Cabrera hit another career milestone on Sunday afternoon with his 500th career home run as a Major League Baseball player.
Cabrera becomes the 28th played in MLB history to reach the 500-home run milestone.
It took Cabrera 11 days to go from 499 to 500, as he hit his 499th home run in a 5-2 win at Baltimore on August 11. Sunday’s home run was a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning, coming off Toronto pitcher Steven Matz. Detroit won the contest, 5-3 in 11 innings.
It was Cabrera’s ninth home run away from Comerica Park this season and 13th of the year.
Cabrera, 38, joins Albert Pujols (677) of the Los Angeles Dodgers as the only active MLB players to be part of the club.
Cabrera’s 500th home run was a first for the Detroit Tigers as well. He becomes the first player in MLB history to record his 500th homer as a Tiger.
The first baseman has hit 362 home runs in a Tiger uniform while hitting his first 138 over five seasons with the then-Florida Marlins.
He is third in the Tigers record books, sitting 11 behind Norm Cash (373), while Al Kaline maintains the franchise record with 399.
Eddie Mathews (512) and Gary Sheffield (509) are the only other former Tigers to amass 500 or more home runs in their playing career.
