8. First career home run is a walkoff — June 20, 2003
Not too bad for a major league debut, eh? Making his debut as a 20-year-old in left field, Cabrera had gone 0-for-4 at the plate until he came up in the 11th inning against Devil Rays pitcher Al Levine.
Miggy got a pitch that ran in on him, but had the strength to muscle it out to the deepest part of Dolphins Stadium, which was not an easy thing to do.
It really felt like as soon as Cabrera was called up, that Marlins team's season started to shift. They started playing much better baseball, and would go on to win the 2003 World Series.
This was just a taste of what was to come for Miguel Cabrera's career. Little did people know that there would be 20 more years of greatness.
