Miguel Cabrera has arrived at MLB’s first home of the season due to the snowflakes on Opening Day
From baseball to snowballs, Detroit has it all.
The weather in April is never the best for baseball, as there are delays in the first few weeks of the season to navigate Mother Nature’s anger and petulance.
This year’s Opening Day weather didn’t matter to Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers: Miggy threw his first home game of the 2021 MLB season, the opposite pitch across the snowflakes in Detroit.
Cabrera seemed a bit confused at the distance of the explosion, sliding the veteran to second base, thinking he was a double double.
A victim of Cabrera’s explosion? Shane Bieber, winner of AL Cy Young.
Although the broadcast seems to be worse than it really is, the Detroit weather is not conducive to the start of the baseball season. Give it warm weather, man.
The snowstorms in Motor City are expected to calm down, although the storms will stop later in the day, giving way to 60-degree weather for the next full week of baseball.
Already, two Opening Day games have been postponed: the Red Sox-Orioles match was due to the weather, and the Mets and Nationals debutant was delayed due to COVID-19 problems.
Be kind, Mother Nature.
