Fielder press conference Thursday

The Tigers usually don’t have an in-person press conference to introduce a player unless it’s a big one. They haven’t had one for a new player, in fact, since Dontrelle Willis signed his three-year contract shortly after his trade to Detroit in 2007. Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez weren’t introduced until TigerFest, and Johnny Damon didn’t sign until spring training.

Prince Fielder’s return to Detroit, however, is very big. Thus, the Tigers will introduce their newest slugger to the public in a press conference Thursday, according to AP.

Details of the contract are also coming out in the report — $23 million in each of his first two seasons, followed by a $24 million annual salary for the ensuing seven years. He also has plenty of incentives: $500,000 for AL MVP with $1 million if he’s a repeat winner, $200,000 for second thru fifth place, $100,000 for top 10, $100,000 if he’s an All-Star starter, $50,000 for a reserve spot, and $100,000 each for a Hank Aaron award, Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, or Sporting News or Baseball America postseason All-Star honors.


Lot of money?? Amazing the original 23 or 24 million isn’t enough, there are millions more on incentive. And yes I know it is typical it’s all just way to much!

I gotta start writing incentives into my salary structure – doubt it would be as impressive though! Wow – lots of money out there, one reason I am glad my boy loves baseball – he is 4 so I am working on honing his skills!

Its gonna be streamed online via @ 2 pm in case ya’ll wanted to watch.
