Longtime Detroit Tigers slugger Cecil Fielder was honored by the organization on Sunday.

Fielder, one of the most-entertaining hitters in MLB history, received a prominent award.

"Proud to honor Cecil Fielder with the 2022 Willie Horton African American Legacy Award for his outstanding contributions to the Tigers organization," the Tigers announced.

Congrats to Cecil!

"Cecil looks amazing!!" one fan tweeted.

Cecil then joined the Detroit Tigers booth later in the game on Sunday afternoon. 

Fans enjoyed it.

"I demand an announcing team of Cecil Fielder and anybody else, I don’t care who, uncensored and raw. I will gladly pay for any streaming service if it must be done that way. This man is a gem and we are missing a tremendous opportunity," one fan added.

The Tigers are leading the Rangers, 5-3.
