Prince Fielder sits with his son Jaden, 7, at the podium during a press conference announcing that Fielder has agreed to a $214 million, nine-year contract with the Detroit Tigers in Detroit, Michigan on January 26, 2012. Fielder’s contract is the fourth largest in baseball history and allows for trading during the first five years of the agreement.

When asked about his historical agreement Prince said, “This is awesome. It’s kind of a dream come true. I’m excited. I’m just ecstatic about being with the Tigers. I’m just here to enjoy the day.”

Although Fielder’s contract is risky because of its length, the Tigers’ owner is comfortable with the terms of agreement. “I go by my instinct, like everybody else does. My instincts told me that this is going to work out fine.”

The Tigers have not won a World Series since 1984. The Michigan-based team hopes that recruiting Prince will increase their chances of victory.

  1. I’m trying to let my sons hair grow like that.I hate when people think that black boy’s can’t have long hair.Why not?

  2. I love his hair! my 2yo hair looks exactly like that. I definitely have to cut it before he turns 7. I don’t think athletes should get paid less but some professions should pay more.

  3. Stop hating people I wish I had 3 percent of that 214 million! I like me some Prince even before this monsterous 214 million!

    • Oh I’m not hating. LOL. That number is just crazy lmao. I would be his personal assistant. If he’s gonna make $214 million, that means he gotta pay his assistant a good chuck of change right? lol

  4. Looks like his dad to me only a lighter version he doesn’t look 7 though, I thought he was 4 or 5. The money these athletes make boggles the mind.

  5. I still remember him as a chubby little kid who use to run out on the field with his dad Cecil when he was a Tiger. Glad to have you here with the Tigers Prince now get to work and earn that $214 million!!!
