Miguel Cabrera is one of the most entertaining players to watch in the batter's box, but it is what happened on the field that was the highlight of yesterday's game. A young Indians fan made a good catch on a foul ball and then proceeded to heckle Miggy, pointing and yelling, "I got your back."

Cabrera, being the great guy that he is, gave the fan two more balls, batting gloves and one of his bats. How many players would have done a gesture like that, in a visiting team's park no less? Not many.
