Todd Frazier Of The Reds Hits Home Run For Batboy With Down Syndrome

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier calls Teddy Kremer a good-luck charm. And with good reason: “Every time he’s here we score 10, 11, 12 runs.” The 30-year-old batboy, who has Down Syndrome, recently told Frazier, “You’re my best friend, I hope you hit a home run for me.” And Frazier had no reservation in saying he’d get it done. The greeting that awaited Frazier after belting a 421-foot shot against the Miami Marlins might have made it Frazier’s happiest homer ever. “I started smiling even before I hit home plate,” he said. Kremer was so excited the umpire had to holler at him to fetch Frazier’s bat, but that didn’t dampen his spirit: “I’m so proud of Todd.”
