While signing autographs at the stadium, Detroit Tigers’ third baseman Miguel Cabrera had seen a “Fire Leyland” sign held by an annoying fan and decided to confiscate the material. The fan continued to badger Cabrera during autographs, but to no avail.
This move shows exactly how much respect Cabrera and the rest of the Tigers’ staff have for their skipper, Jim Leyland. The Tigers are currently one game back from first place in the American League Central, and even though this particular sign would have no impact on Leyland’s future, it’s always great to see a player stick up for the manager every once in a while.
Detroit currently has a three-game winning streak and with only 19 games left in the regular season, the Tigers are concentrated on one thing, winning their division and diving head first into the MLB 2012 Playoffs.
