JUPITER, Fla. (PRWEB) November 21, 2012

Miguel Cabrera, the beloved Detroit Tigers third-basemen who will go down in Major League Baseball history for winning the first Triple Crown since 1967, took home another honor this year: Most Valuable Player.

Cabrera, 29, received the prestigious American League title following the World Series sweep of his team by the San Francisco Giants. What a silver lining for the former Jupiter Hammerheads player.

The Jupiter Hammerheads had Cabrera on the roster in 2002, when the Maracay, Venezuela-born recruit was 19. The team is part of the Miami Marlins franchise and plays at Roger Dean Stadium in Abacoa, a single-family-home community in Jupiter.

Cabrera won the MVP title after the Baseball Writers’ Association of America gave him 362 points and 22 out of 28 No. 1 votes. Two other notes: he became the second consecutive Detroit Tigers player to be voted the MVP, as right-handed pitcher Justin Verlander is the 2011 AL MVP; and the first Venezuelan to do so.

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities is proud of its former neighbor for not only entering the annals of Major League Baseball history but also for ushering in the sport at a then-new stadium in a fledgling community of homes for sale in Jupiter.

Abacoa covers more than 2,000 acres east of Interstate 95 and north of Donald Ross Road and boasts 14 subdivisions. The subdivisions, which also offer townhouses, are built amid baseball fields, bicycle trails, greenspaces, a golf course with an elegant golf club, and a development of shops, art galleries, restaurants and boutique stores.

The family-friendly community is hot property in northern Palm Beach County, report sales specialists Bob Aeillo and Travis Thomson. Baseball is the biggest draw, but the amenities, the nearby attractions, including the best beaches in Southeast Florida, and the Abacoa homeowners’ association also appeal to buyers.
