ARLINGTON, TX—Complaining that he should have dropped the habit a long time ago, members of the Texas Rangers admitted to reporters Thursday that they are constantly disgusted by first baseman Prince Fielder’s tendency to leave chewed-up baseball bats all over the dugout. “Prince is always taking other guys’ bats and gnawing on them—it’s so gross,” said Rangers left fielder Ian Desmond, who added that he and other players will often reach for their bats in the dugout rack, only to find them covered in Fielder’s teeth marks and wet with drool. “I don’t think he even notices when he’s doing it. Sometimes he’ll be talking to me on the bench and suddenly he’ll start chomping on one. I wish he would at least chew on his own bats, because there’s no way I’m using one of mine after he’s had it in his mouth.” Desmond added that he is just thankful Fielder has finally stopped spitting wet baseballs at teammates taking naps in the clubhouse.
