What a weekend! There’s so much to be said and to appreciate about Miguel Cabrera hitting his 500th home run, and getting that much closer to his all-but-certain Hall of Fame entry. As Tigers fans, it feels joyous getting to celebrate such an enormous feat in what already feels like a turning point season for the Tigers. But we aren’t the only ones experiencing the thrill alongside Miggy.

Yesterday, celebratory messages and videos from former Tigers, other members of the 500 club, and even celebrities began pouring in via social media. So we put them all together for you to enjoy.

First off, before we get into the kudos, enjoy this behind the scenes footage from the Tigers clubhouse following the game. Make sure to swipe through the different options for a speech from AJ Hinch.

None other than Dontrelle Willis, who came to Detroit with Miggy in that massive trade with the Marlins.

It wasn’t just players, as Tigers superfan, actor Jeff Daniels, had his own reaction.

Jeff Daniels was just one of many local Detroit celebs who wanted to wish Miggy well.

And beloved Tigers artist Roar of the Tigers might be the reason it happened on Sunday.

And since no one caught the big game ball... it was pretty easy to get it back.
