Prince Fielder Almost Got Sausage'd!

Entering the season with 192 career home runs, All-Star Prince Fielder is a just a few big hits away from reaching 200 for his career.

Last week, the 26-year-old was almost on the receiving end of a big hit (see what I did there?) courtesy of the famed Milwaukee Brewers sausages.

Arizona State University student Andrew Gruman was on the other end of the near-collision.  Here's his account via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

I almost contributed to the Brewers' injury woes.  Friday was my day to run in the Klement's Sausage Race at Maryvale Baseball Park and I chose to be the Italian.

Little did I know that big Prince Fielder would be thrown in as an obstacle.

I saw Fielder in my way as we were about to start the race and thought to myself, he has to move out of the way, doesn't he? He was right in my way and he didn't move. I'll let you watch the rest.

Afterwards, Brewers' assistant general manager Gord Ash thanked me for saving the season.

Thankfully for Gruman, Fielder didn't go all Randall Simon on him. Enjoy the video!
