Prince Fielder collides with Mike Moustakas while covering first (Video)

Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder collided with Kansas City Royals batter Mike Moustakas on a grounder to first base during Wednesday night's game at Kaufmann Stadium.


In the bottom of the sixth, Moustakas hit a chopper towards first base to Fielder, who was about 15 feet off the bag but decided to make the play himself. That led to a race to the bag between Fielder and Moustakas, and Fielder got there first. Moustakas was running hard but took the worst of the impact from the collision with Fielder, as it looked as if Moustakas had hit a brick wall. Moustakas grabbed Fielder as he was falling down and ended up taking Fielder down with him.

Fortunately, both Moustakas and Fielder were OK afterwards, and they both got a big laugh out of it.
