Detroit first baseman Prince Fielder had three hits, one run batted in and two runs scored during the Tigers' 5-4 victory over Seattle on Thursday. He also had a little snack during the fifth inning, courtesy of an unsuspecting fan at Comerica Park. After chasing a high-bouncing ball into foul territory, Fielder found himself hanging over the railing into the stands -- and right next to a fan holding a way-too-tempting batch of nachos. Mmmmm ... don't mind if I do. Fielder was about as cool as a nacho thief can get too, just snatching the chip away, munching on it and wiping his mouth with his jersey as he jogged back into position.

“Pericles, Prince of Tyre” is, dramaturgically speaking, a bit of a dog's breakfast. Scholars agree that Shakespeare's play was largely written by a collaborator -- and a hack at that. The plot includes an incestuous king, two tempests at sea, marauding pirates, a maiden sold into a bordello and a reunion between the maiden (still a virgin!) and the father who thought her long dead. As if that isn't enough, there's also a reunion between that self-same father and the wife he thought long dead.

Prince William is bidding adieu to the Royal Air Force and active military duty. The Duke of Cambridge, 31, second in line to the British throne and father of Prince George, will conclude active duty to focus on his royal responsibilities instead. What royal responsibilities, you say? Mostly those that involve public service, giving speeches, promoting worthy causes, being a national icon, preparing to be king and all things aristocratic that don't always make as much sense to residents of a country with a history of anti-royalist dissent, according to World Now. PHOTOS: Kate Middleton through the years The announcement comes after 7½ years of military service, which included his post as a search-and-rescue pilot.

LONDON -- Prince William, second in line to the throne and father of the world's most celebrated newborn, is giving up active duty in the British military for a life devoted to charity and public service, the royal family announced Thursday. The prince, 31, is completing a seven-and-a-half-year military tour, most of it spent as a rescue pilot based in Wales. Leaving the armed forces will allow William to become, in effect, a full-time royal representative dedicated to shaking hands, cutting ribbons, promoting worthy causes and generally preparing for the day he will be king.

Prince William, wife Catherine and Prince George have released their latest family portraits. The royals unveiled two informal photographs of their new family on Monday via Kensington Palace. (Because who needs Instagram or Facebook when you have a whole palace at your disposal?) The photos were taken by the former Kate Middleton's father Michael Middleton on the family estate in Bucklebury, England, in early August. That's where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently residing until they take up permanent residence in London's Kensington Palace.

Prince William is opening up about fatherhood as he does his royal duties. At an appearance in Anglesey, where he has been stationed as an RAF pilot since 2009, the second in line to the British throne addressed a crowd at the island's annual agricultural show, according to BBC News . He also apologized that his wife, Catherine, and new son couldn't join him at the event. "I have to say that I thought Search and Rescue duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally demanding, but looking after a 3-week-old baby is up there!"

Long known for his distrust of the Internet, Prince on Tuesday made his apparent debut on Twitter, posting a series of messages that suggest he's a bit more Web savvy than he's led us to believe. The tweets began showing up Tuesday evening on the feed associated with his band 3rd Eye Girl, with which he's been playing shows this year, including a memorable barn-burner in May at the Grove of Anaheim. First, the Purple One prepared us for his entrance: PRINCE'S 1ST TWEET...
