Todd Frazier was nostalgic for the days you had to use a landline to make phone calls
The smartphone has become such a routine part of our everyday lives that we often take it for granted. Of course we can pull a little device out of our pocket and look up any information in an instant. Of course we can call or FaceTime anyone anywhere in the world whenever we so desire.
Todd Frazier wanted to remind "the younger crowd" that we haven't always been so lucky by posting a hilarious photo of him from his adolescent days:
I had to put this up to show the younger crowd how the struggle was real back in the day. Trying to talk to your girlfriend with a land line non cordless phone was a struggle. Mom laughing at you too as I talk. Thanks ma lol #nocellphonedays who can relate?????? 😂😂😂 I actually miss these days
Here are the other highlights from baseballers on social media over the last week ...
Frazier wasn't the only one remembering the good ol' days. Nelson Cruz threw it back 20 years to the team he originally signed with out of the Dominican Republic: the Mets.
Carlos Beltran paid homage to all of his former teams with his Halloween costume -- all of his former Major League teams, at least. The Lansing Lugnuts -- whom Beltran played 11 games for in 1996 -- did not get a shout-out, unfortunately.
Hey Carlos... you forgot about us! It's okay, we forgive you. https://t.co/S0LDym52V4- Lansing Lugnuts (@LansingLugnuts) November 1, 2018
Astros prospect Myles Straw also had a great costume for Halloween:

Some members of the Braves' front office did a collective dress-up as the team's players, and some of the actual Braves approved:

The Red Sox won the World Series, and David Price wanted to make sure everyone at the parade knew they couldn't have done it without his Fortnite partner:
