2. All Hail King Prince

Prince Fielder had started an All-Star Game before, in 2007, so it wasn’t a new experience when he was voted in a starter once again in 2011.

The American League took a 1-0 lead at Chase Field in Phoenix when Adrian Gonzalez of the Boston Red Sox homered in the top of the fourth.

So when Prince Fielder came up with two runners aboard and no one out in the bottom of the frame, facing Texas Rangers left C.J. Wilson, a base hit could tie the game.

But he did a lot more than that, crushing a home run into the camera well in deep left-center field for a three-run bomb.

Fielder came out of the game after that, with Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds taking his place at first base, but Fielder was voted the Most Valuable Player of the NL’s 5-1 win.

He was the first Brewer to homer in an All-Star Game (and still the only one) and is the only Brewer to be named MVP of an All-Star Game.

Prince hit .299/.415/.566 in 2012, with 95 runs, 36 doubles, 38 homers and 120 RBI to help Milwaukee to just its second-ever division title and its first since 1982.

But he also left after the season, signing with the Detroit Tigers as a free agent. He now plays for the Texas Rangers after a trade last December.
