Here’s Tigers’ slugger Miguel Cabrera taking away a fan’s “Fire Leyland” sign the other day prior to a game against the Chicago White Sox. Initially, you can see Miguel was annoyed. But, then realized he should probably give it back, for whatever reason.
The fan was later removed during the game and was apparently ejected three total times during the series at U.S. Cellular.
I also couldn’t help but notice the fan being unable to pronounce Miguel… It’s Miguel, not MeeGuel.
Seven years and not one major clubhouse incident… Fire Leyland.
Finally, anyone that has video capability on their smart phone, please start shooting video with the camera horizontal instead of vertical. The video below explains this in more depth.
