A classical slugger: Prince Fielder selects Mozart for walk-up music

Some hitters use heavy metal. Others prefer Taylor Swift. But in 2013, Prince Fielder is going back in time for his walk-up tune -- 222 years to be exact.

The Tigers first baseman recently changed his entrance song to Mozart's "Requiem in D Minor," a powerful, 55-minute piece of music that fits Fielder's majestic swing and dramatic home runs.

"I liked the Batman sound, the superhero sound," Fielder told MLB.com's Jason Beck.
