Robert Fick burst onto the major league scene with the Detroit Tigers in 1998 with a reputation as a solid batsman. His main claim to fame is being the last hitter to homer in Tiger Stadium before the Tigers moved to Comerica Park in 2000. His homer was a grand slam off the right field roof in the last game played at Tiger Stadium. Fick, who played first base, outfield, and catcher over his career, did make one All-Star appearance. He was selected as a right fielder and lone representative of the 2002 Tigers. He played in the infamous 2002 All-Star Game that ended in a tie, going 1 for 2 hitting with a stolen base.
Fick became a hitting coach with the AZL Dodgers in 2016.
