The Tigers first baseman hit his 400th home run in the first inning of today’s game against the Cardinals, swatting a full-count fastball from left-hander Tyler Lyons over the centerfield fence.
The home run was estimated at 428 feet. It was his 10th home run of the year.
With the home run, Cabrera passed Andres Galarraga for most by a Venezuelan-born player and Tigers legend Al Kaline, who both have 399 career home runs. He tied Adrian Beltre for 52nd in major league history and Willie Horton for fourth in Tigers history, with 262 home runs.
