At his peak, Prince Fielder was one of the most feared hitters in the MLB. From 2007-12, Fielder averaged 39.0 home runs and 113.0 RBI per season while hitting a solid .289. He was not, however, known for his speed, nor his athleticism.

But when the 6-foot, 275-pound Fielder had a chance to hit an inside-the-park home run, he capitalized, making for one of the most memorable MLB moments in quite some time.

Fielder obviously benefits from the Minnesota Twins' outfielder completely losing track of the ball. The towering shot he hit also helped buy him a little more time, but the poor throw helped him seal the home run.

It took a pretty extreme set of circumstances, but Fielder did manage to pull it off. However, fans might be shocked to learn Fielder actually legged out another inside-the-park home again in 2008.

One of the most unique hitters in MLB history, revisiting Fielder's career always makes for an epic throwback.
