It’s a beautiful thing when a man wants to get in touch with nature. When he wants to ditch the finer things in life, the lace doilies, the cushioned seats, the leather hand gloves, and instead, get real and dirty, putting meaty fist next to grainy wood, feeling the history of the wilderness whisper its ancient secrets. 
So when Prince Fielder got rid of the trappings of the modern world, represented by mass-produced batting gloves, and went au naturale, he tapped into an ancient pool of knowledge, one shared by the mountain men and wood nymphs. It is here that Prince Fielder experiences oneness with the universe. For it is here where man and lumber, together as one mind, heart, soul, that true dingers can be smashed and inner peace achieved.
