Recycling gets a new meaning for one Tigers fan
I wrote yesterday that "Ian Kinsler should be judged for who he is, not who he isn't."
And I stand by that.
Especially considering Prince Fielder's out for the season, it's unfair for Kinsler — who had contributed far more, even when both were on the field for their respective teams — to be constantly compared to Fielder. (I'm adult enough to know it's going to happen. So is Kinsler.)
And it's obvious that many Tigers fans are still holding harsh feelings for their former first baseman.
One fan at Saturday's game, however, found a good way to continue to make use of an old Fielder shirsey, converting it to a Kinsler model, with the judicious use of what appears to be masking tape.
Below is the tweet from an elementary school principal, Michele Corbat, that brought the remodeling job to public attention.
