Young Cleveland Indians fan can’t be swayed by Miguel Cabrera’s gift

On Tuesday night, young Indians fan Dom Opron was sitting in the front row on the first base side when a foul ball came his way. After making a spectacular grab with his cap, Dom exchanged a few words with Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera.

“I just told Miggy, I got your back,” Dom told Fox Sports Detroit in an interview. “I’ve been telling him. He needed to be fired up…”

Miggy took note and handed Dom a ball, batting gloves and bat. However, the gesture wouldn’t sway Dom, who has been an Indians fan since birth, away from the Tribe.

When asked if Miguel Cabrera is now one of his favorite players, he had the perfect response, “I don’t know … I mean he’s on Detroit.”

Well said, Dom. Enjoy the bat, but go Tribe.
