'Mr. Baseball' himself congratulates Miggy

Tom Selleck made the Tigers' Old English "D" famous by wearing it on Magnum, P.I. He also once played an aging slugger who goes to Japan but ends up as a Tigers coach in Mr. Baseball. On top of that he's also a Detroit native, so it makes sense he'd congratulate a real-life Tigers power hitter like Miguel Cabrera for his Triple Crown.
