TOMS RIVER, NJ – Toms River East Little League star turned Major League all-star Todd Frazier is now moving on to another chapter in his post-MLB retirement as an announcer for ESPN. Frazier will be calling the games at the Little League World Series four months after his announced retirement from Major League Baseball.
Frazier will begin his broadcasting debut on Monday when he calls games for the New England Regional Tournament in Bristol, Connecticut.
“Everything is coming full circle a little bit,” Frazier said in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, especially for the Little League World Series since I’ve been a part of it. I know it and understand it really well. Kind of kickstart my second career here.”
Frazier started his career in Cincinnati with the Reds before moving to the White Sox, Yankees, Mets and Pirates.
He will also be inducted into the Little League Hall of Fame this year.
Frazier told the Enquirer he’s become just plain old dad since retiring from baseball, spending his days coaching his son’s travel baseball team and taking his daughter to gymnastics while finding time to do “house stuff”.
Frazier, a local hometown hero has since had a beer and a burger named after him at local businesses.
