ARLINGTON, Texas -- Prince Fielder wiped away tears, pointed to his two sons sitting next to him and talked about being in big league clubhouses since he was their age. Cheap Adidas Superstar China .Still wearing a neck brace 12 days after a second cervical fusion, the burly 32-year-old Fielder wept Wednesday as he said health issues were forcing him to end his 12-season career.To not be able to play, its going to be tough, said Fielder, once one of the most durable players in the majors.His sons -- one who turns 12 next week and the other 10 -- sat with him at the podium, mostly with their heads down and also shedding tears. They have been regulars at the ballpark with their dad, much like he often was with his father, Cecil, a slugger who played 13 seasons for five teams.The kids actually love baseball more than Prince. It was a sad moment, teammate Elvis Andrus said. You rarely see him like that.All of Fielders teammates, along with Rangers coaches and staff, filled the interview room to support him.When the Rangers acquired him in November 2013 for second baseman Ian Kinsler, the first baseman had played at least 157 games every year since 2006, and appeared in 809 of 810 possible games the five seasons But Fielder was limited to 289 games in Texas because of two neck surgeries in just more than two years.Even though I know I struggled personally this year, this was actually the most fun Ive ever had and the best Ive ever felt mentally about baseball, Fielder said. Thats the only thing that really hurts about not being able to play is that my brain was really good, with my body, just, you know, it just gave out.Fielder will finish his career with 319 career homers, the same number that his father had playing one more season but 141 fewer games. The only other father-son duo with more than 300 homers each is Bobby and Barry Bonds.After being limited to 42 games in his Rangers debut in 2014, Fielder talked about how much he missed baseball and returned last season with a revived passion for the game.Primarily a designated hitter in 2015, Fielder hit .305 with 23 homers and 98 RBI in 158 games, though midway through the season again started feeling symptoms related to neck issues. He then struggled throughout this year, hitting a career-low .212 with eight homers and 44 RBI in 89 games until finally getting an exam three weeks ago while the team was in Los Angeles.Scott Boras, Fielders agent, said they figured it was just a precautionary exam and that maybe he would spend some time on the disabled list, but nothing like this.An MRI showed a herniation between Fielders C4 and C5 disks, just above where he first had surgery in May 2014. Doctors were already recommending that he quit playing before the second surgery July 29.To just suddenly have the lights turned out like that ... were pretty steadied and pretty prepared, but to get that phone call, I was really taken back, Boras said.Fielder was only two years into a $214 million, nine-year contract when he got to Texas. That guaranteed deal goes through 2020, for $24 million each season.While no longer playing, Fielder didnt formally retire, meaning the Rangers would have him on the 60-day disabled list during the regular season but would have to add him to their 40-man roster each offseason until the end of the contract.The Tigers owe Texas $6 million a year as part of their 2013 deal. The Rangers are responsible for the remaining $18 million, though about half of their liability could be covered by disability insurance.Over 1,611 major league games with the Brewers (2005-11), Tigers (2012-13) and Rangers (2014-16), Fielder was a six-time All-Star who hit .283 with 1,028 RBI.When the game is taken away from you like that, I dont think that its easy to handle, 37-year-old Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre said. Its easier when you yourself say, `You know what, I had enough. Im going to go home and be with my family. But when you go home because you cant do it anymore, thats different.Fielder said that when he gets the brace off -- This is killing me, this is terrible, he said -- he will be back with the AL West leaders.Theyve got work to do, Ive got some cheerleading to do, Fielder said. And hopefully win the World Series and pop the champagne.---AP Sports Writer Schuyler Dixon contributed to this report. Adidas Superstars Sale Cheap .

BALTIMORE -- There seems to be no end to the list of players capable of carrying the Baltimore Orioles to victory this season. The latest unlikely hero is Chris Dickerson, who hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to carry the Orioles past the Detroit Tigers 7-5 Friday night. Detroit closer Jose Valverde (0-1) entered in the ninth with a 5-3 lead after starter Max Scherzer retired the final 16 batters he faced. Nick Markakis led off with a homer on a 0-2 pitch before Adam Jones singled and took third on a single by Chris Davis. Valverde (0-1) then retired Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy on popups before Dickerson hit a 2-1 pitch into the bleachers in right-centre, much to the delight of the sellout crowd of 46,249. Dickerson was making his first start since May 23 following a bout with a sore wrist. Batting eighth in the lineup, he was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts before connecting. "Its an amazing feeling, just to contribute in such a big situation," Dickerson said. "This team just claws back every single time. Im just so happy I could cap it off for them." He never before hit a game-ending home run at any level. "I knew right away," Dickerson said. "It was awesome. Thats the type of feeling you just want to bottle up and take home forever. First walk-off at any level. Just an incredible feeling, an incredible moment." Jones, Davis and Manny Machado have provided many big hits for the Orioles this season, but guys such as Nate McLouth, Steve Pearce and Dickerson have done their part, too. "That says a lot about our ballclub, up and down the lineup," Markakis said. "Anybody can hurt you. I think thats a positive thing weve got going for us right now." Manager Buck Showalter said, "Its not like one guys got to carry the load." Darren ODay (3-0) got the final out in the ninth for the Orioles, who have won eight of 11. Miguel Cabrera and Avisail Garcia both homered and drove in two runs for the Tigers, who have lost four straight. This one hurt more than most. "We obviously let onne get away," manager Jim Leyland said. Adidas Superstar Best Price. "Scherzer got us where we wanted to be and then we just didnt close it out. Scherzer was spent and that was going to be his last inning. His pitch count was getting up there pretty good. It was no brainer to bring in Valverde." After yielding a third-inning home run to Jones, Scherzer didnt allow another runner to reach and was poised to become the first Detroit pitcher to start a season 8-0 since Jeremy Bonderman in 2007. The right-hander struck out 10 and walked two, but he threw a season-high 119 pitches before being replaced by Valverde, who came to the mound with a 0.75 ERA. He walked off with his first loss and a 3.55 ERA. "I miss a couple of pitches," Valverde said. "They have some good hitters. Tomorrow is going to be a new day. I had a tough day. Theres nothing I can do. I feel bad for Max because he threw a good game." Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez allowed a season-high five earned runs over six innings and allowed both Detroit homers. The Tigers went up 2-0 in the first inning when Andy Dirks singled and Cabrera hit his 16th homer of the season. Hes the first Detroit player to hit 12 homers in May since Willie Horton in 1968. Baltimore got a run back in the second, getting singles from Jones and Davis before Wieters delivered a sacrifice fly. In the third, Markakis walked before Jones connected to give the Orioles a brief 3-2 lead. A two-out RBI single by Garcia tied it in the fourth, and Detroit went up 4-3 in the fifth when Dirks and Cabrera singled ahead of a run-scoring grounder by Victor Martinez. Garcia hit his second homer of the season for a 5-3 lead in the sixth. NOTES: Cabrera went 2 for 5 with a walk and took over the AL lead in hits with 81.
