ARLINGTON – While fans were still flying high after watching the Rangers’ three-run rally in the ninth inning of Monday night`s game against the Rockies, big news came down Tuesday that floored most.
After having his second neck surgery in two years, slugger Prince Fielder has been declared medically unable to continue his career.
According to ESPN, since Prince is medically disabled and didn’t officially retire, he’s still owed nearly $100 million! Yep, Prince is scheduled to make $24 million every year for the next four years but the Tigers, his former team, will pick up $24 million of the total.
Prince finishes with career totals of 1,028 RBIs and 319 HRs; that’s the same number of career home runs his dad Cecil finished with.
But all those accomplishments pale in comparison to Prince’s biggest shining moment; posing in the buff for the cover of ESPN`s Body Issue. So Prince, thanks for showing that anything skinny guys can do, big fellas can do even better.
Prince and the Rangers are scheduled to host a press conference Wednesday at Globe Life Park.
