Reds' Todd Frazier blasts a huge home run

The beat goes on for the Cincinnati Reds. They won again last night, beating the New York Mets, 6-1. The victory pushes the Reds seven games ahead of the second place. Pittsburgh Pirates.

Since Reds first baseman and best player, Joey Votto went down, Todd Frazier has been filling in for him. Along with outfielder Ryan Ludwick, they've been carrying the Reds. Fraizer's been hitting at .286, 15 HR, 49 RBI and has a .884 OPS. He's also hitting .282 with RISP. Clutch. Well, last night against Cy Young candidate R.A. Dickey, Frazier launched a prodigious home run. It traveled 474 feet and hit the Cincinnati Bell riverboat deck in centerfield. Pretty good for a former pitcher. He was a pitcher for the 1998 Toms River, New Jersey Little League team that won the championship. Was the winning pitcher and went 4-4. (Wikipedia article.) Let's hope that Todd Frazier's championship run extends to the Major League Baseball World Series.

Here's the video of Todd Frazier's gigantic home run. As Reds manager Dusty Baker would say. It was big, man. Try huge, Dusty.
