Miguel Cabrera presented with trophy for Triple Crown

Miguel Cabrera also received the Hank Aaron Award before Game 3 of the World Series against the San Francisco Giants.

Although the night ended with his team one loss from elimination in the World Series, it started much better for Miguel Cabrera. Before the teams took the field, he was presented with the Hank Aaron Award for being the top hitter in the American League.

Perhaps of larger importance though was the trophy he received on the field just before first pitch at Comerica Park. Cabrera became the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to earn the Triple Crown for having the highest batting average, home run and RBI totals in a season. You can see the man who did it before Yastrzemski, Frank Robinson, giving Cabrera the trophy here, but take a look at this rather unique trophy courtesy of Darren Rovell:

Cabrera and his Detroit Tigers teammates have some work to do as they face off against the San Francisco Giants in Game 4 of the World Series in Detroit. They'll try to avoid the first World Series sweep since 2007 when the Boston Red Sox won four straight over the Colorado Rockies.
