The youngest player ever to reach 50 homers, Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder, added another distinction to his growing carrier when he claimed the 2009 All-Star Home Run Derby crown Monday night.

In the final round, Fielder pounded 6 home runs, the capper a 423-foot clout to center field when he still had three outs left, to beat Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz 6-5.

Fielder, 5-11 and 270 pounds, who have averaged more than 37 homers each of the last 3 seasons, Prince Fielder Said, "Coming up through high school, coaches would tell me not to swing so hard. It's the only way I know. It just happens."

The outcome of this year's 2009 Home Run Derby put into perspective Josh Hamilton's feat in pounding out 28 first-round balls in the old Yankee Stadium last summer. Fielder's total for his 3 rounds was 23.
