Fielder keepsakes: Out of stock.
Once inseparable, now the pair barely talks.
“I know how much time we spent together, so it used to really, really bother me,” Cecil said in an exclusive interview with The Shadow League on Wednesday, where he also announced he’s writing a book about his ordeal with Prince, due out this year, titled, Blood On The Diamond.
“Ten, 11 years have passed since he graduated high school, so time for me has kind of eased a lot of the pain because I have three other kids that I’m trying to give the same opportunity that he got.
“So my focus has changed.”
... According to Cecil, Prince crushed him a few years ago, in Atlanta.
Cecil took his new wife and family to a Brewers-Braves game. The group included Ceclynn, Prince’s younger sister. After the game, they all went downstairs to the visiting clubhouse in hopes of seeing Prince. Cecil said that he told the guard at the door to inform Prince that he and the family were outside waiting on him.
Not only did Prince not come out to see his father, according to Cecil, they were told to leave.
“He sent a policeman out and made me leave the stadium,” Cecil said. “That hurt. That’s just total disrespect.”
Cecil said he felt even more hurt for his daughter. “If he didn’t want to see me, and I can understand that, he could have told the guy, ‘Hey, can you tell my dad I want to see my baby sister. I don’t want to talk to him right now,’” remarked Cecil. “Instead, they escorted me out of the Atlanta Braves Stadium.”
