Frazier family has another Little League star

August 14th, 2021

Not a week after took home a silver medal at the Olympics, another Frazier is shining on a slightly smaller stage.

Twelve-year-old Carson Frazier, the son of Todd's older brother Charlie, had the decisive hit for Toms River East Little League in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship on Friday night, a booming three-run double as part of a six-run sixth inning. Toms River came into the inning trailing 3-0 and facing elimination.

Todd himself won the Little League World Series with Toms River East in 1998, a run remembered as much for the team's subsequent Yankee Stadium visit and that picture of a young Frazier standing at shortstop with Derek Jeter as it was for its title. Todd and Charlie's middle brother, Jeff, also played for Toms River in 1995, and had a brief stint in the Majors in 2010 with the Tigers.

Though Carson's dad's professional career didn't extend past Double-A, you still might remember Charlie Frazier Jr. -- as the pitcher Todd partnered with to win his 2015 Home Run Derby title.
