LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - While Detroit's pitchers and catchers went through their first spring training workout, Prince Fielder was over at a youth diamond across town.
The slugging first baseman joined about 100 youngsters Tuesday for the unveiling of what was billed as the world's largest baseball card. Created by the Topps Company, the card measured approximately 90x60 feet, leaving center field covered with the giant image of Fielder swinging.
With his beefy frame and prodigious power, Fielder doesn't look like a player who can simply blend into a lineup, but somehow he did just that in his first season with the Tigers. Fielder hit .313 with 30 home runs and 108 RBIs, part of a drama-free debut in Detroit.
