Eastbay Field Tested // Miguel Cabrera Covers February Issue of Eastbay

Eastbay Field Tester: Miguel Cabrera

words // Brandon Richard

Who’s the best player in Major League Baseball? With two-straight MVPs and three-straight batting titles, it’s hard to argue against Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera. Miggy is piecing together a Hall of Fame resume in D-Town, where he’s doing everything it takes to bring the Commissioner’s Trophy back to the city.

Individually, his biggest achievement came in 2012, when he became the first batter to win the Triple Crown (most home runs, most RBIs, highest batting average) since since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Behind Cabrera’s big bat, the Tigers won the AL pennant.

Heading into his 12th season, Cabrera is preparing to win in New Balance baseball gear. With spring training around the corner, we’ve teamed up with the reigning MVP and New Balance for the cover of the latest issue of the Eastbay catalog. Inside, all of the latest baseball shoes and clothing you need before returning to the diamond, like the New Balance 4040v2 Metal Mid. The cleat, decked out in camouflage print, inherits a RevLite midsole that comes from New Balance’s top-of-the-line running technology.

Additionally, Cabrera recently sat down with Eric Thomas for a 1-on-1 interview, in which the two covered a range of topics including hitting tips, confidence at the plate, giving back to the community, handling failure and the three things Cabrera couldn’t live without. You can view each of those video clips below.

And a look at the February cover athlete, two-time MVP Miguel Cabrera. The issue will start hitting mailboxes Monday. You can request your FREE catalog here.
