Indians try to catch Prince Fielder snoozing, hilarity ensues

Prince Fielder is 'too quick' for the hidden ball trick.

During Monday’s Indians-Rangers game, we witnessed a hilarious sequence of events when Tribe pitcher Shaun Marcum tried to catch Prince Fielder snoozing with the hidden-ball trick.

Fielder was casually strolling around second base and appeared to be yucking it up with the Indians outfield when Marcum sneakily threw the ball to Jason Kipnis in a pickoff attempt. But alas, Prince was too quick.

We’re not sure which part of the play was better — Fielder scurrying and sliding back to the bag, or his excessive gloating after being called safe.

We think it might be the latter, because after all, it was during a time-out.
