Prote-J: The Man Behind Prince Fielder’s Music

One of the best parts about attending a baseball game is listening to which songs your favorite players have chosen to announce their arrival at the plate.

Most major-leaguers choose a song off the top 40 list or decide to revive a classic hit. Not Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder though, who has taken his at-bat swagger to the next level by having an up-and-coming rapper create music specifically tailored to the slugger.

Enter Prote-J, a talented rapper/producer/songwriter from the 3rd World Country, Papua New Guinea. Fielder bumped Prote-J’s “Heir to the Throne,” in 2010 and is now walking up to the plate at Miller Park to a new track entitled “Prince of the Game.”
