2014 NHSCA National Baseball Coach of the Year watches former player win All-Star Home Run Derby

There will be lots of celebrating in Toms River, New Jersey today as Todd Frazier, fresh off his 2015 All-Star Home Run Derby win, returns to his hometown.  In addition to his family, you can be sure one of the people he’ll see will be his former high school baseball coach Ken Frank, who was the 2014 NHSCA National Baseball Coach of the Year.


Frank said this about Frazier to the Asbury Park Press — "He's a Major League star, not just a Major Leaguer, which is hard to do.”


Frazier, who’s in his fifth major league season with the Cincinnati Reds, took a charter flight back to the Garden State with fellow New Jersey star Mike Trout of Millville High School, who was named the All-Star Game MVP Tuesday night.


Frazier, who was voted the National League’s starting third baseman by the fans, has slugged 25 home runs this season and is having what Frank considers an MVP-type season.


"Just knowing Todd, he found a way to get it done. He always has," Frank told the Asbury Park Press.  "Starting in the All-Star game meant a lot to him."


In 2002 and 2003, Toms River South High School and Frank won New Jersey Group III titles with Frazier as the team’s leader.


Frank is New Jersey’s all-time winningest baseball coach with 825 victories and counting.
