Adam Meets Prince

Adam Eaton chopped a ball down the first base line in the second inning today only to meet an immovable force, Prince Fielder.

Drawing a collective chuckle from the crowd, Fielder had scooped up the ball and came down the line toward Eaton.

As Eaton approached Fielder, both players smiled and Fielder tagged/hugged Eaton for the third out of the inning.

Sometimes, when big meets small …

He will throw a long-toss session tomorrow for a third consecutive day and a bullpen session on Tuesday.
