The Detroit Tigers had some positive moments this year

We won’t sugarcoat it. This is a lost season for the Detroit Tigers, and has been for a while now. But believe it or not, it hasn’t been all doom and gloom for the 2022 Detroit Tigers.

Yes, that’s right. In a season where the team will lose just shy of 100 games, there were some moments worth remembering.

I know this season has been largely negative and forgettable, but let’s just focus on some of the positives for a change. Here are the top five moments from the Detroit Tigers 2022 season.

5. Miguel Cabrera’s 600th career double on May 7

The last calendar year has been one filled with milestones for Miguel Cabrera. From hitting his 500th home run in August of last year, picking up his 3,000th hit in April of this year, and this, his 600th career double on May 7 against the Houston Astros.

It was a two-run double off Astros’ lefty Framber Valdez. With it, he became just the third player in MLB history with 500 career homers, 3,000 career hits, and 600 career doubles.

Miggy would go on to have a solid first half, followed by a rough and injury-riddled second half of the season, but this was a really nice moment nonetheless. With the news that he’s for sure returning for the 2023 season, there could be even more historic achievements for the future hall-of-famer.
