After a season in Japan Cecil Fielder signed a two-year deal with the Detroit Tigers, where he’d spend seven seasons and establish himself as a slugger.

In his first season with the Tigers, Fielder hit 51 home runs and 132 RBIs. At the time, he was just the 11th player in MLB history to reach the 50 home run mark. He was also the first member of the Tigers since Hank Greenberg to do so, and no other Tiger has done it since.

While the Tigers played through the early nineties with little-to-no success, Fielder became a fan favorite. His slugging power and big smile were a hit amongst many of the Tigers fans. In seven seasons with the Tigers, Fielder hit a total of 245 home runs. However, his career mark is 319 home runs.

In his seven seasons, Fielder posted a .258 BA, .351 OBP .498 SLG, and a .849 OPS. He hit 245 Hrs, 758 RBIs, 141 doubles and 947 hits. Cecil Fielder comes in at sixth on our list. He’s behind Tigers great Willie Horton, who is regarded as one of the all-time great Tigers. He was a member of the ’68 World Series Championship. Horton infamously stood on the corner he grew-up on and tried to calm the riots of Detroit in 1967.
