Miggy presented with his Tiger of the Year award

The Detroit chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America presented Miguel Cabrera with his Tiger of the Year award Friday at Comerica Park, before the game against the Atlanta Braves. 

Cabrera was a unanimous selection, after his Most Valuable Player and Triple Crown season in 2012. 

It was the third time he'd won the award since joining the Tigers, also winning in 2008 and 2010.

Cecil Fielder (1990, 1991, 1992) was the last three-time winner of the award. Alan Trammell won it three times, as well. No player has ever won it four times.
