#109 – Cecil Fielder

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 109 - Cecil Fielder

Tom Riles and Art Eddy talk about the Life of Dad Fantasy Football League, which famous New York Mets pitcher will be playing in our league, what Tom did for his birthday, kids going back to school, and much more. The guys also bring on Major League Baseball great Cecil Fielder.

Cecil Fielder was a slugger to be reckoned during his time in Major League Baseball. Fielder played for a few teams, most notably for the Detroit Tigers. In 1990, he became the first player to reach the 50-home run mark since George Foster hit 52 for the Cincinnati Reds in 1977. He helped the New York Yankees with the World Series in 1996. He is a two time Silver Slugger Award winner as well as being the American League RBI Champion for three years straight.

He is the father of Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder, who is considered one of the best current power hitters in Major League Baseball. When Prince hit his 50th home run in the 2007 season, it made Cecil and Prince the only father/son duo in Major League history to each reach the milestone. Like father, like son in that department. Fielder also has three more children, another son and two daughters.

We were able to chat with Cecil about winning the World Series, his career, what he taught Prince about baseball, and fatherhood.
