Prince Fielder’s Naked Pic Star of ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue
ESPN unveiled photos of its 2014 Body Issue (which hits newsstands Friday) — and the magazine has six different nude covers — Michael Phelps, Venus Williams, Marshawn Lynch, Jamie Anderson, Serge Ibaka and Texas Ranger Prince Fielder.
And it’s the photo of Fielder — who clocks in at 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 275 pounds — that’s been owning the Internet.

In defense of his “interesting” body shape, he told ESPN, “You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete. A lot of people probably think I’m not athletic or don’t even try to work out or whatever, but I do. Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack.”
Fielder does have a point — and for a guy who can shower without ever getting his feet wet — he’s proved it with his $24 million a year contract.
