The Detroit Tigers played against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday.
The Dodgers took advantage of the unique opportunity to present a gift to Tigers legend Miguel Cabrera, who is playing his final few games in MLB as he is set to retire after the season.
Many teams are doing it, in fact: they are showing appreciation and admiration towards one of the best right-handed hitters of our time.
The Dodgers had a cool gesture towards Cabrera, presenting him with a Hollywood Star.
MLB on FOX posted the video of the moment, via MLB Venezuela.

Like the star he is, Cabrera was happy to receive his star and greet Dodgers players.
He also thanked fans in Los Angeles for all the memories.
Cabrera went 1-for-4 on Monday, with three strikeouts.
His batting line for the season is now .257/.318/.340 with three home runs and a .658 OPS in 333 plate appearances.
His career has been much, much better though.
He is slashing .307/.382/.518 with 623 doubles, 510 home runs, 3,166 hits, and a .901 OPS.
Those are surefire Hall of Fame numbers, especially if we add in his two MVP awards, his Triple Crown, and his multiple batting titles.
The Dodgers’ gift was very much fitting: Cabrera has been a true star in MLB ever since he made his debut as a 20-year-old baby-faced kid in 2003.
He won his first and only World Series that year, back when he was with the Miami Marlins (then Florida Marlins).
It was a proper sendoff for one of the best players of our time.
