Cincinnati Reds/Toms River Local Todd Frazier. Superhero?
We posted a story at the beginning of the 2012 Major League Baseball season about Todd Frazier, a Toms River native and 1998 Little League World Series star, who made the starting roster on the Cincinnati Reds. To read that story, click here.
Well now his story keeps on getting better.
When the Cincinnati Reds came into town to play the New York Mets at Citi Field, Todd made a statement. He hit 2 home runs in the same game to beat the Mets 6-3. Welcome home Todd Frazier!!
Now it seems all Todd needs is a cape and tights.
On Monday Frazier was having dinner with teammate Ryan Ludwick at a Pittsburgh restaurant when they noticed that a man a few tables over was choking on his meal. Two women unsuccessfully tried to help the choking man, when Ludwick said “Get over there”.
Frazier sprang into action. He performed the Heimlich maneuver twice, and the piece of meat eventually flew out of the choking victim mouth.
Frazier never got the man’s name. The man wasn’t even aware Frazier was a ballplayer.

Who knows what’s next for Mr. Frazier. Is rescuing kittens from trees in his future? Assisting in open heart surgery? The skies the limit with this “kid”.
Great job Todd!
