Now, at last, the Tigers have officially announced this signing, via their official Twitter account, which you know is official because it is called OFFICIAL_TIGERS:
Tigers have agreed to terms on a nine-year contract with first baseman Prince Fielder. #tigers
Glad to know that we didn’t waste the last two days talking about something that wasn’t going to eventually be official!
Anyway, all of this will be presented to the world in a news conference Thursday afternoon, according to Fox Sports Detroit:
Watch the Prince Fielder press conference live at 2 pm on FOX Sports Detroit and streamed at http://FoxSportsDetroit.com #Tigers
That’s 2 p.m. Eastern time; do your own time-zone conversion.
