University of Detroit Jesuit senior shortstop Daniel Fields is considered one of the nation's top baseball prospects. Here are the five athletes the Michigan recruit looks up to the most.

2. LeBron James
"He's so big, and that he can move around the court so well is unbelievable."

3. Tracy McGrady
"He's so smooth. I really like the way he plays the game."

4. David Ortiz
"I like him because he's a left-handed power hitter, and I know him."
