The Prodigal Son returns and once again we are shown how sports, life, and reality can be too bizarre and poetically perfect to be believed.
Two decades ago an oversized slugger prolifically launched prodigious home runs for the Detroit Tigers...his name: Cecil Fielder. While playing in Motown, Cecil had a son named Prince who took batting practice in the old Tiger Stadium, impressing and charming his dad's teammates. In time, father and son grew apart, but as the youngster grew up (and out), it became clear that he inherited more than his father's body type, he possessed his incredible hitting skills.
Prince Fielder quickly made a name for himself, slugging his way to the major leagues by age 21, and to a home run title by age 23. Over his first 6 full seasons, Prince averaged almost 40 HRs and 100+ RBIs per year while leading the Milwaukee Brewers to 2 playoff berths...and this year he hit the free agent market. After a painfully long offseason negotiation period with no contract, Prince finally signed a monster deal to play for.....wait for it...the Detroit Tigers.
With a $200M deal under his enormous belt, Prince will look to dwarf his father's considerable shadow playing for the same team. Though he's a vegetarian, Prince Fielder has become the largest carnivorous feline in North America, donning his stripes and looking to lead the Tigers back to the World Series. He's the Big Cat, and he'll be the anchor of an impressive lineup that looks to take down the Yankees, Red Sox, Rangers and Angels.
This original design depicts the Big Cat finishing one of his ferocious swings while wearing his new team colors -- it's a hand drawn work that's been rendered as a high-resolution lossless vector graphic to preserve perfect clarity when printed on your shirt. Be the first to have a tee celebrating Prince Fielder as a Detroit Tiger by ordering Big Cat in navy, orange or light grey on 100% cotton pre-shrunk tops in sizes small through 2XL. (Alternate brands/cuts/colors/sizes can be custom-printed for little additional cost).
