If you’re like a lot of Tigers fans, Prince Fielder is probably in your top ten most hated athletes in Detroit.
I understand that thought process after his comments to the media after the Tigers lost to the Boston Red Sox in the 2013 ALCS.
Once Prince was traded to the Texas Rangers for Ian Kinsler, Prince said, “Everybody was on me a little bit about my performance which is rightfully so. You know I sucked, but I didn’t have to be reminded of it; (laughing) so hopefully we can make some better memories here.”
At least he did own up to the fact he didn’t play well at all.
One thing you can’t knock Prince for is his undeniable power.
In an Instagram video by Fielder’s Texas teammate, Keone Kela, he posted Prince doing squats, with Rougned Odor on Prince’s shoulders.
Whether or not you are a Prince Fielder fan, you have to admit it’s pretty impressive.
