After a five game wait, Prince Fielder picked up his 127th RBI last night with an eighth inning sac fly, setting a new franchise record. He accomplished the feat while previous record holder Cecil Cooper looked on from the Astros dugout. Cooper wasn't the only one looking on, though: Across Twitter, dozens of people have chimed in to share their excitement and offer congratulations. Here are a few of them:
First, Adam McCalvy set the stage:
Then, the congratulations flowed freely:
@Mike_Sweeney_ Congrats to Prince Fielder on breaking the milwaukee brewers single season RBI record!
For some, the celebrating bordered on TMI:
@dalionqn Prince Fielder? I'd hit it ;)
And for some, it was just part of a schizophrenic explosion:
@ErinVruwink Woooooo....Go Packers!!!!!!111 Prince Fielder Brewers RBI recod in a single season! I hate Brett Favre...I hate the Viking.....screw them!
But for those who were there, it was a special moment:

Prince Fielder doesn't Twitter, but Tom Haudricourt had his reaction after the game:
@Haudricourt Prince Fielder, after setting club RBI record: "It's about time. I was getting frustrated." Had no RBI for 5 games and 1 over last 9 games.
