Detroit Tigers star third baseman Miguel Cabrera was voted Player of the Year by his fellow major leaguers at the Major League Baseball Players Choice Awards.

Detroit Tigers star third baseman Miguel Cabrera was voted Player of the Year by his fellow major leaguers at the Major League Baseball Players Choice Awards. 

According to the official MLB website, Cabrera won back-to-back Player of the Year honors with his 44 home runs and 137 RBIs. By hitting .348 for the season, Cabrera also won his third consecutive batting title, matching an accompolishment achieved in 1920 by Rogers Hornsby for a right-handed hitter. 

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who won the National League Outstanding Pitcher award, finished runner-up to Cabrera in the voting. Cabrera also topped Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who lead the majors with 53 homers, and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout for American League Outstanding Player honors. 

Cabrera said it feels great but it didn't come easy for him.

"It's a great feeling. It was a tough season. It means a lot. 

"It's hard. A lot of people ask me the same thing. I say,'You know what we're going through every day. In the field, we focus on what we're trying to do, help our team win games.'"

Cabrera's Tigers, who lost in six games to the eventual World Series champions Boston Red Sox in six games in the 2013 ALCS, certainly made their presence felt on this day. The team swept Player of the Year, Outstanding Hitter and Outstanding Pitcher honors, the first time it was accomplished in four years.

Cabrera snagged the first two awards while his teammate, starting pitcher Max Scherzer, won the third.

For his excellence on and off the field, recently-retired New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera earned the Marvin Miller Man of the Year, in addition to him copping American League Comeback Player of the Year honors. He had 44 saves last season after sitting out most of 2012 with a knee issue. 

Pittsburgh Pirates starter Francisco Liriano won the National League equivalent.

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers was recognized as the American League Outstanding Rookie while Miami Marlins starter Jose Fernandez emerged as the National League's top rookie.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
