Detroit Tigers: 4 positives that came from the 2022 season
The Detroit Tigers 2022 season has finally come to a halt.
Though the Detroit Tigers season was not one that they should be super thrilled about, there were still some good things that came out of the summer. For the Tigers, it’s a new era, as the road ahead is much different than where they have been.
While the Detroit Tigers have plenty to look forward to in the coming months, there’s still time to reflect on what this past 2022 season brought to the organization. Instead of dwelling on what was negative or what may have sucked about the season, let’s focus on the positives.
Trying to think about the good things or the noteworthy parts of the 2022 season seems like the best way to wrap things up. For the Tigers, it would be easy to focus on the negative, but finding some positives is worth it.
Here are a few positives that came out of the 2022 season. From roster moves, breakout performances, pitchers stepping up, and a change in direction, the Tigers did have positives to focus on.
Detroit Tigers veteran Miguel Cabrera tallies his 3,000th hit.
Miguel Cabrera crossed another milestone off the list early on in the season. Amid the Aaron Judge home run chase, which overtook the league and others with cut-ins during his at-bats impeding the sports world all over, another legend made history.
For the Detroit Tigers and Cabrera, he was able to add another accolade to his career resume. Cabrera tallied a three-hit day over a doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies on April 23rd, 2022. This helped him collect his 3,000th hit (and 3,001-3,002) over his 20-year MLB career.
He adjusted to an inner-third pitch, shooting it the other way for an easy single into the right-center gap. A gorgeous piece of hitting from Cabrera to collect hit number 3,000. It was one of the positive moments or good parts of the 2022 season.
The Tigers fans should be happy that Cabrera pulled this off, and the fans got to enjoy this moment. While it was likely to happen early in the season, either way, it’s a good moment from this summer’s season.
As fans look back on the year, Cabrera’s 3,000th hit will certainly stand out as one of the high points or best moments from the Tigers’ season.
