You won’t find this photo anywhere else on the internet. The reason for this is it’s original material, snapped at a Tigers game when that grand old park was still erected up in Detroit in the late 90’s by our good friend and Tigers super fan @cmears9. This photo is from May of 1998, Fielder’s only year with the Angels. You may remember Corey’s find of this gem of Domino-playing Vlad Guerrero with his gun-carrying buddy nearby.
We miss Tiger Stadium, and we miss Big Daddy hitting those softball shots up on the roof. When we first starting watching shows like ESPN’s Baseball Tonight as a kid, this guy was the most feared power hitter of them all.
It is possible that this was one of the last shots of Fielder ever taken at Tigers Stadium.
