Arlington — Traveling across the country hasn’t been the easiest thing to do the past few days, but Prince Fielder showed up Monday for a news conference introducing him as the Texas Rangers’ new first baseman.
No one should have been surprised based on Fielder’s track record. Showing up for work, putting aside aches and pains and travel woes, is one of the things he does best and plans to keep doing.
The Texas heat isn’t a big deal for a player who lived in Texas some while growing up before moving to the humidity and sunshine of South Florida.
