Prince Fielder slides into bases often, but has proven that the old adage "practice makes perfect" is far from gospel. Exhibit 2,794 (we think) occurred tonight. First, the good: Prince laced an outside pitch from Indians starter Zach McAllister off the wall in left-center.
Then, the ugly: Prince had to slide to beat a well-placed throw from left fielder Michael Brantley. He did well to avoid the tag, but high school physics shows us that Prince had a bit too much momentum going into that slide.
Naturally, the dugout had a field day with this.
