During his major league baseball career, 2-time Most Valuable Player Miguel Cabrera has done battle with Baltimore Orioles, Blue Jays from Toronto and Cardinals that call St. Louis home. But his most intense aviary opponents may have been a couple of Detroit pigeons.

Watch as a pair of bold birds take on the Detroit Tiger firstbaseman and Pittsburgh Pirate pitcher Vance Worley in the first inning of Wednesday night's game at Comerica Park in Detroit. The two aviary combatants seem oblivious to their surroundings as the pair, along with home plate umpire Ted barrett try to chase them off.

Finally, the Comerica Park ground crew captured the dueling duo and escorted them to a much safer location.
