Prince Fielder Succumbs to Injury, Retires at 32

Prince Fielder is known to many as the son of Cecil Fielder another former slugger and 1st basemen, but it seems that the prince has seen his final at bat come to past as he has been told by medical doctors that it is not safe to resume his professional baseball career. 

Fielder 32, has now been through two neck surgeries for a herniated disk and had a cervical fusion July 29th. He is under contract through 2020 and is in the 5th year of a 9-year/$214 million dollar deal he signed back in 2012.

The Rangers will hold a press conference for the six time All-Star to announce his retirement. He ends his memorable run in the majors with 319 homers, ironically the same as his famous father Cecil. Prince also holds the Brewers record for home runs in a season with 50 back in 2007.
