Miguel Cabrera Steals ‘Fire Leyland’ Sign From Fan While Signing Autographs Before Game (Video)

Don't ever imply that Miguel Cabrera doesn't support his

During the Tigers' recent series against the White Sox, a
fan expressed his displeasure with manager Jim Leyland by bringing a
poster to U.S. Cellular Stadium with "Fire Leyland" written on it.

When Cabrera caught sight of the sign while signing autographs, he yanked it away and gave it to a security guard. The
fan went onto pester Cabrera for supporting Leyland, stealing his sign and,
randomly, about teammate Ryan Raburn.

Fortunately for the fan, Cabrera has a sense of humor.
Although the Tigers third baseman disagreed with the fan's stance on his
manager, he cracked smiles during the exchange and at the end motioned for the fan's sign to be returned.

Check out the video below to watch Cabrera take the sign from the anti-Leyland fan.
