Cabrera to join Tigers' front office following last game of career

Detroit Tigers legend Miguel Cabrera will become a special assistant to the team’s president of baseball operations when he finishes a 21-year career with his last MLB game Sunday, the club announced Friday.

“While it may be the end of an era, it’s a new beginning as Miguel will continue to pass along his baseball wisdom, culture-shaping values, and mentorship to the next generation of Tigers players, who can aspire to the level of greatness that Miguel has achieved,” Tigers chairman and CEO Chris Ilitch said in a statement.

The two-time AL MVP and former Triple Crown winner will join Alan Trammell, Jim Leyland, Willie Horton, Kirk Gibson, and Lance Parrish as special assistants.

The idea of Cabrera joining the Tigers’ front office had been talked about for weeks before the announcement, as the future Hall of Famer has said that he wants to guide the next generation of players once his career is over.
