The Atlantic: The Little League World Series Phenoms Who Became MLB Stars

Current Cincinnati Reds infielder Todd Frazier is one such [LLWS and MLB] star. Frazier has been terrific in his role with the Reds, at times filling in for injured third baseman Scott Rolen and currently manning first base in the absence of injured Joey Votto.

Here are list of nine other current and former MLB players aside from Frazier who first made their names on the fields of Williamsport.

why is a bleacher report article on the atlantic's website? (as in: partner or not, isn't BR below their standards?)
also, i like that the first guy they list among 'current and former MLB players" is a guy who's yet to debut (j.profar).
no, not "a star", but frazier's 137 ops+ this year is pretty nice.

Sheffield's team was defeated by the Far East representative from Hualian, Taiwan, 4-3, in the championship game [and he has been super ####### pissed ever since!].
