  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (July 6, 2014) – Former Rutgers baseball standout Todd Frazier earned a spot in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game as a reserve third baseman for the National League. Playing in 86 games for the Cincinnati Reds, he has connected for 17 home runs and 47 RBIs so far this season.

    Frazier is the first Scarlet Knight to achieve MLB All-Star status since Eric Young in 1996.

    In his fourth season with the Reds, Frazier’s home run total leads the team and ranks tied for fourth in the National League. He is also hitting a career-best .291 through 330 at bats and has stolen 13 bases.

    One of the most accomplished players in program history, Frazier ranks first in the RU record book with 42 career home runs and 210 runs during his three seasons (2005-07) in Piscataway. He hit .377 with 93 hits, 24 doubles, 22 home runs, 65 RBIs, 62 walks and 25 stolen bases in a memorable All-America 2007 season that saw the Scarlet Knights win the Big East regular season and tournament. Frazier batted .520 (13-for-25) with three homers and seven RBIs in the tournament held in Brooklyn to help lead Rutgers to an NCAA Regional berth.

    Frazier was picked by Cincinnati with the 34th overall selection in the 2007 draft and made his MLB debut May 23, 2011.

    The MLB All-Star Game will take place at Target Field in Minneapolis July 15 at 8 p.m. It will be televised on Fox.
