Remember Teddy Kremer? If not, go watch this video as a reminder.

Nearly three years ago, Teddy Kremer struck up a friendship with Reds third baseman Todd Frazier. Kremer (who has Down syndrome) was serving as bat boy for the Reds, and Frazier hit a home run at his request. It was a pretty fun moment for everyone concerned.

This has nothing to do with the current Cincinnati Reds, but I like it. On the same night that we had an emotional return in Cincinnati, Frazer and Kremer had a little reunion in Chicago, where Frazier is playing for the White Sox.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

  1. Not only did we lose Todd Frazier but we appear to have lost Teddy to! How can the Reds Front Office live with themselves?

  2. Thanks for the update on a nice story Chad. Think that major league ball players aren’t heros and role models? Think again – and some of them are actually worthy of and respectful of and humbled by the admiration they receive.

    • It’s sort of an irrelevant story in terms of the current Reds, but I’m a sucker for stuff like this.

      • Most of us are thankfully.

      • Me too, Chad. My husband tricked me into getting interested in baseball mostly by reading me your posts, especially when Supertodd took over for Joey in 2012. I’m still hooked, even in this sometimes unwatchable season.

      • It’s a fluff piece. You know, a feel good piece 😉

        I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff too. The Ortiz and Maverick Schutte story also really stuck with me.

      • I’m a sucker for this stuff too. Brings tears into my eyes (but I’ am not crying!)

  3. As we know, Todd Frazier is a classy guy. I miss him in a Reds uniform.

    • I miss him in a Reds uniform to. We could’ve kept him.

      • Even though he’s worse than Eugenio Suarez, and older?

        I miss Frazier, too. He was a good Red, and seemed like a great guy. He’s not the same player he was at his peak, IMO.
