[edit] Biographical Information

Francisco Cabrera was signed as a free agent for the Toronto Blue Jays by scout Epy Guerrero on September 17, 1985.

Cabrera will long be remembered by Atlanta Braves fans for a single at bat. On October 14, 1992, in the 9th inning of Game 7 of the NLCS, Cabrera hit a single through the left side of the infield. Sid Bream, one of the slowest men in baseball, scored from second base on the hit, sending the Braves to a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates and their second World Series in a row. President George H. W. Bush congratulated the team on their composure in the face of adversity, stating, "The game isn't over until Cabrera swings."

In 2006-2007, he was a coach with the DSL Tigers. From 2008-2010, he was catching and hitting coach for the DSL Mets or DSL Mets 1. In 2012-2014, he was the hitting coach of the DSL Indians.
