Tigers Vs. White Sox: Detroit's Miguel Cabrera Smashes 300th Career Home Run

After being foolishly served a Philip Humber fastball over the plate, Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera pounded out his 300th career home run in jaw-dropping fashion on Sunday afternoon against the White Sox. As's Jason Beck points out, Cabrera became just the second Venezuelan-born player to accomplish the feat:

Cabrera added another solo home run earlier in the game to reach 299, and quite literally demolished the ball over the 420-foot sign at the base of center field for No. 300. Considering how only a handful of players in baseball are even capable of reaching Comerica Park's ivy around the fountain and camera wells at all, let alone routinely, it's quite remarkable that Cabrera has started to make insane home runs like this feel, well, normal.
