Yesterday, I got the chance to head up to 2K Sports' motion capture facility in Novato, CA to get a look at 2K's upcoming arcade baseball game, The Bigs 2 and spend some time with cover star Prince Fielder, first basemen with the Milwaukee Brewers and one of the new breed of power hitters in Major League Baseball. Fielder is the son of former Detroit Tigers' player Cecil Fielder and the similarities between the two are unmistakable. Both are big, friendly guys, both can yank a ball a million miles, and both have staked their claim to greatness in the big leagues.

Accompanying Prince to the mo-cap session was an entourage of folks including his wife and two children, his agent, and two of his Brewers' teammates: outfielder Mike Cameron and reliever Seth McClung, both of whom were keen to check out The Bigs 2 and get in on the mo-cap action. Here's some pictures from the event:

You never know who will be called in for mo-cap, so the 2K crew makes sure lots of shoes sizes are available.

Fielder's son got in on the mo-cap action too. Could we see a third Fielder in the big leagues one day?

We'll have more on The Bigs 2 in the very near future, including an interview with Fielder. Until then, check out the latest Bigs 2 trailer below:
