Toms River Local Earns Cincinatti Reds Roster Spot [VIDEO]
You might remember the name Todd Frazier from the 1998 World Champion Toms River East Little League team. In the final game of the tournament, he was the winning pitcher in the Box score and went 4-4 with a home run.
Well 14 years later, Todd is a major league baseball player. Frazier has earned a spot on the 40 man roster for the start of the 2012 baseball season. He is hitting .302 this spring and leads the Reds with five home run and 15 RBI.
"Looking at coming into spring, that was my goal — to make the team,” Frazier said. “That’s the first goal. The second goal is to help the team.”
