DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera has spent nearly a decade making the spacious Comerica Park look small. The Diesel Brothers built him a truck that made it look even smaller.
It was a new adventure for Cabrera, a noted car enthusiast.
"I like old cars because my grandfather used to be a mechanic in Venezuela," he said in Spring Training, where the first scenes were filmed. "I like to build cars and trucks."
It was also a new venture in the sports world for the Diesel Brothers, who knew about Cabrera but had never met him. It didn't take them long to realize what he had in mind.
Cabrera will put the truck on display during his annual Keeping Kids in the Game charity event at Comerica Park on July 27. There, he'll auction the truck, with proceeds supporting the Miguel Cabrera Foundation, the Children's Hospital of Michigan Foundation, the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, and the Detroit Tigers Foundation, an affiliate of Ilitch Charities. Live bids will be accepted at the auction, but interested bidders unable to attend the event can contact the Detroit Tigers Foundation to place a bid.
