There are two things that get Texas Rangers star Prince Fielder a big ovation from his teammates and fans: his power and spectacular bloopers.

The latter just happened to earn him his latest big cheer.

In the bottom of the first inning of Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland lined a base hit to left field. Fielder, with two outs, was off at the crack of the bat.
