Milwaukee Brewers First Baseman Owes the IRS $409,149

Yesterday Detroit News broke the story that Prince Fielder, who plays for the Milwaukee Brewers, owes $409,149 to the federal government in unpaid taxes. Prince is the son of former Detroit Tiger great, Cecil Fielder, who currently manages the independent league Atlantic City Surf baseball team.
