Todd Frazier’s Parents Named Little League Parents of the Year
Charlie and Joan Frazier have been named the 2015 George and Barbara Bush Little League Parents of the Year!
Little League made the announcement, crediting the Fraziers with a "level, steady and grounded approach to the successes and failures of their children ... both on and off the field".
Charlie Frazier, Jr., was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the sixth round in 1999 and played five seasons of professional baseball, reaching Double A. Jeff, 32, played on the Toms River East Little League teams that made it to the 1995 and 1996 Little League World Series. He was drafted in 2004 by the Detroit Tigers, traded to the Seattle Mariners in 2007, and re-signed a free agent contract with Detroit following the 2007 season. Charlie, Jr., and Jeff now operate Frazier Baseball, a company that teaches younger children the fundamentals of baseball.
Charlie and Joan's youngest son has reached the highest levels. Todd Frazier, 29, led the Toms River East Little League to the 1998 World Championship. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the first round in 2007. He is a two-time All-Star, and won this year's Home Run Derby.
The three brothers were all together at the Derby, with Charlie pitching to Todd.
