Prince Fielder shares teaser trailer for new food show

While spring training games get underway around baseball this week, recently retired first baseman Prince Fielder has something else on his plate.

The 32-year-old released a teaser trailer for his food show, "Fielder's Choice," that's set to begin streaming on Netflix and Hulu sometime in March.

The trailer features what you would expect: Fielder and his wife, Chanel, enjoying a variety of delicious plates prepared for them at numerous establishments.

Fielder described the show and how it came about as part of a Q&A with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick last month.

"[A friend of mine] said, 'What do you want to do when you retire?' I said, 'I always wanted to do a food show.' I thought it might be a cool thing to do when I retired a few years later. Then retirement came slightly prematurely.

"It's not just baseball people. It's a mixture of baseball people, actors, musicians, chefs and whatnot. They bring out different dishes, and at the end of the show, I give the one I like the most the 'Fielder's choice.' It's good TV."

Fielder has proved before that food and he do indeed make for good TV.
