Prince Fielder fielded a ball in a very sensitive area during Saturday night’s Tigers/Royals game. Stress a very sensitive area.
The bases were loaded with two outs in the top of the eighth and Fielder attempted to field Alex Gordon’s grounder to first in a spot no man wants to be hit by a baseball. Fielder – never regarded for his glove in the first place – made the play and then doubled over in pain.
We all feel your pain, big guy. (But why don’t players wear athletic supporters anymore?)
It wasn’t all pain for Fielder, as he also homered in the Tigers 6-5 victory, which came via a ninth-inning walk-off by Miguel Cabrera.
