Watch Miguel Cabrera make a young fan's night

While Miguel Cabrera has already overtaken Eric Hosmer in the All-Star game voting, it never hurts to keep up good public relations.

Miguel Cabrera is a fan favorite for many reasons. First and foremost, he's the best hitter in the game. But few guys have more fun on the field, or enjoy interacting with the fans more. After this young Indians' fan snared a groundball with his hat, he screamed to Miguel that "he had his back" and then proceeded to posture hilariously as Ian Kinsler and Cabrera looked on in amusement and acknowledged his fine defensive effort. Miguel showed his appreciation, and no doubt made a fan for life with this savvy display of public relations.

Outside of crushing home runs, there's nothing Cabrera enjoys more than making a special moment for the next generation of baseball fans.
