    Prince Fielder knows what it's like to be bullied as a kid.

    As a portly pre-teen, he said he took his fair share of bullying, and now he's beginning to see his two sons get the same treatment.

    And now, Fielder is doing something about it as one of the main faces to the Texas Ranger's new anti-bullying campaign called "Going to Bat Against Bullying," which is geared toward kids from fourth grade through eighth grade in Texas schools.

    “I have two boys getting older,” Fielder told The Dallas Morning News. “They’ve had a couple. It’s a big deal. It’s tough on kids. It’s serious. Kids kill themselves over this. I just wanted kids to know to go talk to somebody. Don’t hold it in. I was able to talk to my parents about when I was younger.”
