Early Life

MLB Career

Prince Fielder was selected with the seventh overall pick in the first round of the 2002 MLB Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. He started his career in the minors and made his big-league debut with the Brewers on June 13, 2005. He bounced between the minors and majors some more that year, and then in 2006 became the Brewers starting first baseman. Fielder broke the record for most home runs by a rookie and became the youngest player in National League history to hit 50 home runs. He was the first Brewer to win the Home Run Derby and became one of a select few players to win more than one Home Run Derby. Fielder was the first player to win the Derby as both an American League and National League All-Star.

Prince Fielder played the first seven years of his career in Milwaukee before signing with the Detroit Tigers in 2012.
