Prince Fielder's amazing All-Star triple as it was meant to be seen -- in GIF form

In what was arguably the single greatest moment of a singularly great All-Star Game, Prince Fielder hit a leadoff triple in ninth. Yup, that Prince Fielder.

The larger-than-life first baseman was jogging to first when he saw Carlos Gomez miss his attempt at a diving catch.

With all the unlikely grace of Dumbo taking flight, the 275-pound Fielder rounded second at top speed. Will he make it?

Without a moment to spare, Prince slid safely into third. It is medically impossible to see his reaction and not feel happy.
