Prince Fielder News


Prince Semien Fielder (born May 9, 1984) is a Major League Baseball player who plays first base for the Milwaukee Brewers. He is currently listed at 5' 11" (180 cm) and 285 lb (129 kg). He was selected by the Brewers in the first round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft out of Eau Gallie High School in Melbourne, Florida.

He is the son of former Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Cecil Fielder. Prince and Cecil are the only father-son combination in MLB history to each hit 50 home runs in a season. Prince holds the Brewers' team record for home runs in a season and the MLB record for youngest player to hit 50 home runs. Prince Fielder is the first Brewer to win the Home Run Derby, defeating Nelson Cruz 6–5 in the final round of the 2009 derby in St. Louis.

Prince, like many sons of prominent major leaguers, was a fixture around his father's teams' clubhouses growing up. In addition, he starred alongside his father in a McDonald's commercial and appeared with him on MTV's "Rock 'n' Jock Softball".
