One of the more touching parts of the Tigers' 2013 season has been hearing about Brayan Pena's defection from Cuba and his immense pride for his American citizenship. Today, Pena got a chance to play on Independence Day... at first base.
He didn't come in until the ninth inning, but was ready when called upon.
Naturally, he was fairly pleased with himself.
So were the American bros in attendance.
Happy Fourth of July, everyone.
