GIF of the Day: Miguel Cabrera homers, rubs Jose Iglesias' head for good luck

Rich Schultz

The Tigers don't have a bald backup catcher, so their young shortstop's head is apparently the good luck charm on this team.

One of those old baseball traditions that we hear about is rubbing the catcher's head for good luck. Either Miguel Cabrera got his signals crossed somewhere or Brayan Pena is as adverse to having his head touched as Adrian Beltre is, because Cabrera decided to rub Jose Iglesias' head first after he homered tonight.

First, the homer.
