Fielder is a Tiger with teeth wisdom

Detroit Tigers cleanup hitter Cecil Fielder is on the cusp of something: getting children to brush off after plate appearances.

Fielder has helped form Sports Dent to market hygiene products such as Bat-A-Brush, a toothbrush shaped like -- guess what? -- a bat.

"It was something I was definitely interested in . . . getting kids into the bathroom and brushing their chops a little bit more," he said.

Other products include a toothbrush holder that plays "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," a floss dispenser shaped like home plate and baseball cards on which kids can record their RBI: Runs Brushed In.

The Continental Basketball Association forward was dealt Thursday from the Columbus Horizon to the Rochester Renegade to the Hartford Hellcats to the Rapid City Thrillers to the Oklahoma City Cavalry.
