Former RU Baseball Star Todd Frazier Will Bring the Boom in the Home Run Derby

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Toms River native and Scarlet Knight star Todd Frazier has been selected as an NL All-Star, and will participate in Monday's Home Run Derby.

In his third full season as a big leaguer, Rutgers' own Todd Frazier, a third baseman for the Cincinnati Reds, was selected as a National League All-Star.  He is currently hitting .291 with team-leading totals of 17 home runs and 47 RBI. He also has 16 doubles, one triple and 13 stolen bases.

Perhaps even more notable than his All-Star selection, Frazier was chosen by NL Home Run Derby Captain Troy Tulowitzki to be one of four players representing the National League in Monday's Home Run Derby. The Home Run Derby will begin at 8pm on ESPN from Minnesota's Target Field.

Players choose their own pitcher for the Home Run Derby, and Frazier selected his older brother Charlie.  As he told the Cincinnati Enquirer:

"My brother throws for me back at home all the time, I think that'll be pretty good to have my brother throwing to me, hopefully he doesn't fizzle up, either," Frazier said. "Hopefully both of us can figure something out and get in a groove."

Congrats to Todd, and make us proud!
