Prince Fielder Biography

Birthdate: May 9, 1984
Birthplace: Ontario, California

MLB great Cecil Fielder may have named his son Prince, but it may be the younger Fielder who ends up the king!

Prince Fielder - In the Shadows

Prince Fielder is the son of former Detroit Tiger great, and Hall of Famer, Cecil Fielder. Having a famous dad, Prince has always been around the game of baseball. As a kid, he starred in a McDonalds' commercial with his dad. But Prince was anything but a tag-a-long. When he was just 12 years old, he hit a home run in Tiger Stadium during batting practice. He carried that talent over to Eau Gallie High School in Melbourne, Florida, where he starred for four years. When he graduated high school in 2002, he was picked seventh overall in the draft to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Prince Fielder - Minor League Years

Prince Fielder spent the first few years out of high school playing in the minor leagues. In 2004, he was named the Minor League Player of the Year by USA Today while playing for the Huntsville Stars of Double A. In 2005, Prince joined Nashville's Triple A team, but was called up shortly after. Prince made his major league debut with the Brewers on June 13, 2005 against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Prince Fielder - Something Special

In his first full season in the majors, Prince took full advantage. He hit .271 and knocked out 28 home runs and 81 RBI's. He finished seventh in NL Rookie of the Year voting. As good a season as 2006 was, it was nothing compared to his 2007 campaign. On top of the Brewers winning, Prince has posted MVP-esque numbers. As of September 18, 2007, he was leading the NL in home runs with 46, while hitting .291 and driving in 111 RBI's. At just 23 years old, Prince is one of the most talented and powerful young talents in the league. Experts believe he can grow into something special - maybe even better than his Hall of Fame dad!

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
