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.
