Reds third baseman Todd Frazier hit a HR last time Teddy Kremer, an adult with Down Dyndrome was the team’s bat boy. He made such an impression last time he did it last summer, that he was invited back. something he also did for the team one game last summer, and he made such an impression that he was invited back.
And Frazier homered again – a 421-foot bomb to dead center – this time after Kremer’s request.
“He is so funny. He said, ‘Hit me a home run, man, I love you.’ I said, ‘I love you, too. I’ll hit you one.’ It was great,” Frazier said. “I started smiling before I hit home plate.”
“It was pretty special,” Frazier said of the night. “It’s something I’ll remember, because he is such a nice guy.”
Before the game, Kremer, with manager Dusty Baker, brought out the lineup card vs. Miami and stood next to him and Frazier during the singing of the national anthem.
