Dear fans of Prince Fielder's next team, whoever you may be,

I come to you today with a word of caution regarding your new slugger, in the interest of your safety and the safety of your concessions.

When Prince Fielder is up, no matter how far you are from the plate, you should be watching what's going on. And, for the love of all things holy, hold on tightly to your popcorn lest this happen to you:

That ball traveled 486 feet and was both the longest home run hit in all of baseball in 2011 and the longest in the history of Minute Maid Park. It was the farthest a ball has been hit in the majors since Wladimir Balentien hit one 495 feet back in October 2009.
