Flashback: Prince Fielder launches towering home run off the catwalk at Tropicana Field (VIDEO)

Okay, let’s face it. Prince Fielder probably isn’t the most popular of former athletes to have suited up in the Motor City for the Detroit Tigers.

But during his two years wearing the Old English D, he sure hit some bombs.

Let’s throw it back to June of 2013, when he smashed an absolute bomb of a home run against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The ball sailed so high, it deflected off the catwalk at the top of the indoor venue:

Prince sure had power at the plate! He had 55 home runs and over 200 RBI in two seasons with the Tigers before being dealt to the Texas Rangers.
