Venezuela's Miguel Cabrera, just 20 years old when he debuted with the Marlins midway through 2003, soon became Florida's regular clean-up hitter and led them to that year's World Championship.
Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera used this bat on September 18, 2012, to swat his 40th home run of the season, an eighth-inning grand slam that capped the Tigers’ 12-2 victory over visiting Oakland. That year the Venezuelan Cabrera not only earned baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years, he also won the AL Most Valuable Player Award for his historic season.

Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera wore these spikes on October 3, 2012, the last day of the regular season, when he secured the American League Triple Crown. Cabrera finished the season with 44 home runs, 139 RBI and a .330 batting average, becoming the first to earn all three titles since Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.

Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera, American League MVP, smashed his 43rd home run of 2013 while wearing this jersey. From 2007-2013, the Venezuelan slugger posted a higher batting average and amassed more homers and RBI than anyone else in baseball.

San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval used this bat to launch his first two of three home runs in Game One of the 2012 World Series. MVP of that Fall Classic, the Venezuelan third baseman became just the fourth player to hit three homers in one Series game.
Marco Scutaro donned these shoes as he joined fellow Venezuelan players Pablo Sandoval and Gregor Blanco to secure the 2012 World Series for the San Francisco Giants. His .500 batting average in the 2012 National League Conference Series against St. Louis earned the playoffs’ Most Valuable Player Award.
