Prince Fielder tagged out on double after sliding past second base (Video)

Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder was tagged out after sliding past second base on a double during Saturday's MLB game at Comerica Park against the Los Angeles Angels.

In the bottom of the second inning after Fielder hit the ball down the line to right field. Fielder was running full speed to second base, but didn't decide to slide until the very last second. Fielder tried to grab the base with his left hand, but his momentum carried him about five feet past the bag, allowing Angels second baseman Erick Aybar to tag him out easily.

The Tigers should come up with a strategy so that Fielder knows whether to slide or not slide the next time around. He's very lucky he didn't hurt himself, and the Tigers can't afford to lose a valuable player like Fielder as they make a late run for the playoffs.

  1. someone needs to teach Fielder how to slide, looks like he doesn't like to slide and get his uniform dirty. He looked very stupid.

  2. Maybe Fielder needs to loose some kilos to avoid making a fool of himself like he did when he over ran the base, I refuse to call that a slide, first he ducked when he came by the second base,then when it was too late tried to fake a slide.I know it's hard to carry all that fat around but he's got to choose a healthy diet and turn that fat into muscle. Good Luck & God Bless!
