ESPN to highlight Miguel Cabrera's bid for Triple Crown on final day of season

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

ESPN plans to cut-away to every Miguel Cabrera at-bat on the final day of the 2012 regular season as Cabrera attempts to become MLB's first Triple Crown winner since 1967.

Cabrera currently leads all three Triple Crown statistical categories. He is batting .323, two points better than Mike Trout who stands at .321. He has 136 RBIs, nine ahead of the Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton's 127. And he has 43 home runs, tied with Josh Hamilton.

ESPN initially planned on showing four MLB games on the final day to highlight any and all drama that the regular season finale provides, but they have now changed their scheduling to show only two games. The freed up time will be used to highlight Miguel Cabrera's at-bats.

Coverage will begin on ESPN and ESPN2 at 7 p.m. ET.

Miguel Cabrera's Detroit Tigers are three games ahead of the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central.
