Prince Fielder hit the deck no fewer than three times during tonight's Tigers loss in Arlington to the Rangers, but did so no more bizarrely than here in which the portly first baseman ran his way out of a rundown, waving his arms like a man fleeing a burning building along the way.
But was he safe? Watching in slow motion, it appears his girth betrays him, as one of his rolls bounces up to meet Michael Young's glove. Of course, the umpire missed this, and we have yet another entry in our Human Element series.
