Todd Frazier is spending his offseason training his son to become another HR Derby winner

Like the ancient Jedi that have come before him, Todd Frazier knows how important it is to train the next generation of powerful metahumans, especially when it comes to the all-important skill of swinging things around. Which means that this offseason, the new White Sox third baseman and reigning Home Run Derby champ is spending his time preparing his son, Blake, to follow in his footsteps as a crusher of baseballs. 

And the next generation Frazier is already doing quite well.

Not only is Blake showing prodigious power, but he's doing it while swinging with perhaps the most open stance this side of Tony Batista.

Of course, scouts do note that while his one-handed swing is cool-looking, it will make him susceptible to outside breaking pitches. Considering he's not even 2 years old yet, I think we can excuse him for the mechanical flaw.
