Former Texas Rangers slugger Prince Fielder announced his retirement at 32 during a tear-inducing press conference in August, but the six-time All-Star has a new path.

Fielder's set to co-host a cooking show with his wife called "Fielder's Choice," which is expected to debut in March on Netflix and Hulu.

"I have a food show that's going to be streaming on Netflix and Hulu," Fielder explained to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. "It's coming out around the beginning of spring training in March, I believe. It's not just baseball people. It's a mixture of baseball people, actors, musicians, chefs, and whatnot. They bring out different dishes, and at the end of the show, I give the one I like the most the 'Fielder's choice.' It's good TV."

Some of Fielder's first guests on the show are actor Chazz Palminteri, singer Jose Feliciano, rapper Xzibit, and New York Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia.

Fielder's career was cut short after he underwent a second surgery on his spine that left him physically incapable of continuing to play baseball. In his 12 seasons, he hit 319 home runs, recorded 1,028 RBIs, and posted an .887 OPS.
