Comerica Park paid tribute this Friday to Miguel Cabrera for his 500th home run in the majors, last Sunday, against the Toronto Blue Jays in Canada.

During the meeting between Detroit Tigers and Toronto, a series that will run until Sunday, there was a pause in the stadium to update the count of a large slate, going from 499 to 500, in reference to the feat achieved by the 38-year-old player from Maracay.

The cameras captured the surprise and emotion on the face of the athlete, who did not hesitate to get out of the dugout (bench) to revere the ovation of the public.

Amid applause, whistles and shouts, those present paid tribute to Cabrera.

In the game, Venezuelan Víctor Reyes broke the tie with a home run in the eighth inning, and the Tigers preserved just the lead to beat the Blue Jays 2-1 on Friday night.

Dominican José Cisnero (3-4) took the victory and his compatriot Gregory Soto resolved the ninth chapter to reach 16 saves.
