I read that he used to take BP at Tiger Stadium and was hitting upper deck shots...at the AGE OF 12! 8-o

Can anyone confirm this? I don't remember this. I'm sure a 12 year old hitting upper deck shots woud have been at least minor news on ESPN or something.

LCBOY,

Im here to confirm that. He was taking batting practice with his old man, and was parking them in the stands.

Wow! That must have been a sight to see. I gather he was a bit bigger than the average 12 year old...

Yep, I remember that too. I was like "wow, Cecil's little kid can hit homeruns already 8-o " and now look where it's taken him...... that's kinda cool. And I still probably couln't hit one out of thre park in a MLB stadium !+)

Does anyone remember the Rock and Jock softball games on MTV? One year Cecil was there and brought Prince along. After seeing Prince try and catch an infield popup it is hard to believe that he is a professional baseball player.

From what I read, Prince has really worked on his eating and conditioning. He's not the big fat kid was saw in those high school videos...
