(WXYZ) — Miguel Cabrera took no time to build up his home run numbers, hitting a 2-run home run during the first inning of Opening Day in the middle of a snowstorm.

With a runner on first and 1-1 count, Cabrera took a high pitch and sent it over the left-field wall, his 350th home run as a Detroit Tiger.

It all happened at the same time a small but heavy snowstorm was blowing over the area.

The snow was so heavy that Cabrera didn't even know he hit a home run, sliding into second base before he realized it went over the wall.
