Detroit Tigers: When Baseballs and Food Collide

Detroit Tigers Food Collision 2: Miguel Cabrera and Brayan Peña
Detroit Tigers fans love how much fun Miguel Cabrera has on the baseball field. It’s safe to assume his teammates do too, though maybe not always. Case in point is the video above, where Cabrera appears to be trying to stuff some kind of fig bar in Brayan Peña’s face.
Miggy has a bit of a complicated relationship with food, from selling bottles of salsa to hawking his short-lived BitBits candy, but there’s nothing complicated about what’s happening here. Peña doesn’t want the bar, which only makes Cabrera more aggressive. Peña wins out — a wise move given the close relationship between figs and wasps — and it’s the sort of quality decision making one would expect from a future manager.
