VIDEO: Phil Coke's Miguel Cabrera impression is great

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Phil Coke does a pretty good Miguel Cabrera impression as he tells a story on the MLB Network.

Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Phil Coke does an impression of Miguel Cabrera as he tells the MLB Network about when he reminded Cabrera that he had struck him out before they were teammates.


Coke talks about when Cabrera asked if they had ever faced each other before they were both members of the Tigers. Coke clearly remembers the encounter but it appears that Cabrera did not. Coke struck out Miguel Cabrera in 2008 when Coke was a New York Yankee, Cabrera was a Tiger at the time.

This season Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown, leading the American League in batting average, home runs, and RBIs. He was the first player to do so since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.

The Tigers take on the San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday night. The Giants took Game 1 with an 8-3 victory. Coke did not pitch in Game 1 and Cabrera went 1-for-3.
