Miguel Cabrera, the newly-crowned American League MVP, took to Twitter to thank everyone.

After being named the American League Most Valuable Player on Thursday, Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera tweeted his thankfulness later that day.

Here's Cabrera with a tweet of thanks and dedication:

Cabrera, after winning the first Triple Crown since 1967, got 22 of the 28 first place votes for AL MVP and 362 points overall from the Baseball Writers' Association of America, besting Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim rookie Mike Trout, who garnered six first place votes and 281 overall points.

The Tigers' third baseman batted .330 with 44 homers and 139 RBI in 2012, leading Detroit to the World Series.

Teammates also hopped on Twitter to congratulate Cabrera, as starting pitcher Justin Verlander called him the "best player in baseball" here:

Fellow middle-of-the-order slugger and Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder also gave congrats, as he mentioned giving next season an ending with four more wins than Detroit had in this campaign:
