Today is Monday, April 25, let's check out Detroit's biggest stories from this past weekend.
Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers made history on Saturday, becoming the seventh player in Major League Baseball history with 3,000 hits and 500 home runs.
The record-breaking hit occurred in the first inning of Saturday's game against the Colorado Rockies, and was welcomed with a chorus of cheers from the Comerica Park crowd.
Cabrera, 39, is an 11-time All-Star, 2-time MVP and is a 7-time Silver Slugger award winner.
As announced last Friday by the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, the 2022 USA Today 10 Best Readers' Choice Awards contest has named the Detroit Riverwalk as the best riverwalk in America for the second straight year.
Matt Cullen, board chairman of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, spoke about USA Today's recognition and future plans for the riverwalk.
“We are thrilled to be voted number one for the second year in a row,” Cullen said. “This is going to be a big year for us as we break ground on new projects, mark the completion of our East Riverfront vision and make plans for our 20-year anniversary in 2023, so it is incredibly rewarding to be able to celebrate the Best Riverwalk honor during this special year.”
