Miguel Cabrera, former Major League Baseball player and Venezuelan baseball star, made an appearance at the Caribbean Series party in Miami to support the Tiburones de La Guaira of Venezuela in the semifinal against the Curacao Suns. During the game, Cabrera took the opportunity to give some advice to the players of his country, expressing his hopes that they would have a strong start against the Tigres del Licey of the Dominican Republic.
Cabrera shared his thoughts on feeling more pressure in retirement, stating, “Now I suffer more because I can’t control anything. Now I’m fighting because they’re swinging at everything. I hope they calm down.”
Despite his retirement from the MLB in 2023, Cabrera dreams of having the opportunity to return to baseball in another capacity. “I have to prepare to be a manager in the Major Leagues. It’s a process. Unless they lend me the Tigres de Aragua or sell them to me,” he joked.
Cabrera also reflected on the success of the Tiburones de La Guaira, expressing his hopes for the team to become champions in the Caribbean Series. “Good luck to the Tiburones de La Guaira. I hope we can be champions. I’m going to miss them. I will continue coming to the stadiums to watch the games,” he said.
The presence of Cabrera at the Caribbean Series brought excitement to the event and highlighted his continued passion for the sport of baseball. Despite being retired, Cabrera remains an influential figure in the baseball community and continues to support and advise players from his home country of Venezuela.
