Thirteen years after winning a Little League World Series with Toms River, Todd Frazier realized his major-league dreams Monday.
Cincinnati called up the 25-year-old utility player from triple-A Louisville, just in time to visit Citizens Bank Park and leave a few tickets for some nearby friends and family. Frazier, who attended Rutgers, hit .294 with 11 home runs at triple A. He's played first base, third base, and left field.
Way back when, as a Little Leaguer, he was 4 for 4 with a home run in the 1998 championship game against Japan.
