Sixty miles from Citizens Bank Park, the night after the Astros combined for a no-hitter in Game 4 of the World Series, two-time MLB All-Star Todd Frazier took the mound himself at The RWJBarnabas Health Field of Dreams.
Unfortunately for Frazier, pitching in his namesake Special Needs Baseball League, any chance he had at a no-hit bid was squashed after the first batter. He didn’t mind, though.
“I got knocked around twice. They were seeing the ball so well on me,” Frazier said. “Underhand or overhand, these balls were being crushed.”
