Fields of dreams: Among the minor leaguers who joined the Tigers for the Toronto split-squad game was 20-year-old Daniel Fields, the son of former Tigers outfielder and hitting coach Bruce Fields. In his first major league game, Daniel Fields -- who attended U-D Jesuit High -- singled in his only at-bat. He'd have something to tell his father, who's in Arizona in spring training with the Indians as their minor-league hitting coordinator.
"He told me (Monday night) to relax and play how I normally play, and I'll do fine," Daniel Fields said. "He was right."It felt great to play in this game. It was a lot of fun."
