Prince Fielder turns one of the strangest double plays ever

In the bottom of the 5th inning, with a massive 7-1, Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder turned an incredibly strange double play.  Cleveland Indians outfielder Drew Stubbs hit a blooper to Prince, which he dropped.  The ball was still in fair territory, but base runner Lonnie Chisenhall didn’t run.  Prince casually walked over to Chisenhall, tagged him on the leg and then stepped on the base to turn the double play.  Had he stepped on the bag first, Chisenhall would have remained safe, so it was a heads up play by Prince to tag Chisenhall before the bag.  The Tigers went on to beat the Indians 9-4.
