Todd Frazier Goes Yard On Request From Bat Boy Teddy Kremer

The Reds’ honorary bat boy last night was Teddy Kremer, who has Down syndrome and a wealth of enthusiasm for the team. He asked Frazier to hit a home run for him before the third baseman stepped to the plate in the sixth, the Reds already up on the Marlins 9-1. So Frazier did. Simple, right?

Great pic and fun video.

It would have been awesome if the Marlins plunked him next AB.

Teddy indeed rules. Todd Frazier's not far behind. Great moment all-around.

This was fantastic. Way to go Todd Frazier, and way to embrace the moment Teddy.

I love seeing Teddy's enthusiasm. Just about perfectly mirrors how I feel inside about baseball.

That last scene, where he looks to the heavens and double pumps his fists was my favorite part.

Perhaps the best commentary on how awesome this moment was: Thom Brennaman couldn't find anything negative to say about Teddy. (yeah, I know!)

It was a great moment and fun as hell to watch on TV. I remember last summer when Ted was the batboy - the second go-round has the same feelgood repercussions. Attaboy!

Chris Heisey would have hit 2 home runs if Teddy had asked.

Plunk a kid with Down syndrome? That's cold, man.

Joey Votto needs to earn a walk after a Down syndrome kid asks him to get on base. I want to see Thom Brennaman react to an intellectually disabled kid going equally nuts over ball four.

The umpire had to yell for Teddy because he forgot to pick up the bat. You can see on the video when Teddy goes to get the bat, the ump has a big smile on his face.

Man, a guy like that will remind you how awesome this game is.
