First Baseman Forsakes Flesh

Thanks to the all-things-vegan blog Vegan Bits we’ve learned that another pro athlete has gone vegetarian. Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder was apparently inspired by—oh noes!—the book that has caused a terrible rift in the political vegan world, Skinny Bitch, to drop meat from his diet.

Not exactly fresh news in Milwaukee, will the 6-foot, 260-pound Fielder’s new diet cause other athletes to take up the ethical eating cause? Will vegetarianism give last year’s Brewers MVP the edge? According to Fielder, “Since I started, I feel amazing. When I wake up, I’m up. I’m not lying around anymore.”
