Todd Frazier can't contain his excitement watching his son Blake hit a dinger off a tee
Mets third baseman Todd Frazier is no stranger to the long ball. The eight-year MLB veteran has 185 home runs to his name at the big league level, as well as a Home Run Derby title thanks to his epic performance in his then-home ballpark in Cincinnati back in 2015. So it should be no surprise to learn that his 4-year-old son Blake has already started to perfect his own home run swing:
Like father like son. We're looking forward to the 2038 Home Run Derby, featuring Blake Frazier.
Here are some other highlights from the last week from baseballers on social media...
This is me keeping my cool. I almost ran out to center field to hug billy lol https://t.co/o7USnsrYW0— CountOnAG (@Amir_Garrett) July 14, 2018
Reds prospect Tyler Stephenson was similarly amazed:
I’ve watched this on replay for the past 10 minutes... 👀😱— Tyler Stephenson (@Tyler_Step22) July 14, 2018
All-Star Week kicked off with the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which featured Indians pitching prospect Kieran Lovegrove, who felt oddly old by prospect standards:
Uhhhh nobody informed me that I am going to be the SECOND OLDEST player on the field this weekend, and I feel like I'm not gonna relate to the kids...— Kieran Lovegrove (@Lovegrove19) July 14, 2018
What if I don't understand the lingo?!?
Or the music doesn't make sense to me?!
Hoskins 👀!!! #wow— Mike Trout (@MikeTrout) July 17, 2018
Former Orioles Minor League outfielder Conor Bierfeldt had an amusing observation:
In 2015, Rhys Hoskins beat me in a home run derby. Our careers have gone in different directions since.— Conor Bierfeldt (@conorbierfeldt) July 17, 2018
Hoskins himself chimed in afterwards about his Derby experience:
I’d like to send my condolences to all of the balls that were harmed in the making of that Derby #OHMYGOODNESS— Rhys Hoskins (@rhyshoskins) July 17, 2018
I'd put Freddie down for 15-20 if the pitcher throwing to him was trying to get him out.— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) July 17, 2018

Airports bring out the best in people. Can’t get enough of the kids that get so fed up getting their parents’ attention that they resort to their first name “Mom! Listen! Mom! Mom! CAROLLL!!!”— Jameson Taillon (@JTaillon19) July 19, 2018
