Prince Is Home Run King

Detroit Tigers Facebook

Prince Fielder won Monday night’s Home Run Derby and became the first Detroit Tigers player in history to do so.  Fielder beat Toronto’s Jose Bautista in the final, edging Joey Bats by a score of 12-7.  Overall, Fielder blasted 28 balls over the wall at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.  Prince also hit the longest fly of the night, a 476 foot shot into the water of the outfield fountain of the ballpark.

Fielder also won the event in 2009, while playing for the Milwaukee Brewers.  He became just the second player ever to win the Home Run Derby more than once.  Ken Griffey Jr won three titles, in 1994, 1998 and 1999.

Fielder will be in the starting lineup, batting 5th and playing first base for the American League in Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game.

Congrats Prince!
