Mike Moustakas explains the football strategy behind his collision with Prince Fielder

Appearing on MLB Network's Intentional Talk on Thursday, Mike Moustakas recounted the circumances that led to his tackle of Prince Fielder.
 
The former high school football star explained that, in the football game taking place at the same time in a parallel universe, it was third and goal on the one, and he needed to stop Fielder from crossing the plane.

Moustakas also discussed the origins of his nickname "Moose," his love for the USC Trojans and whether he'd rather listen to a Bruce Chen joke or Jeff Francoeur bragging about his arm.
