New Jersey’s Finest: Mike Trout and Todd Frazier

For the second season in a row, two natives from New Jersey will be featured in this year’s MLB All-Star game. Mike Trout from Millville, NJ and Todd Frazier from Teaneck, NJ were both voted by the fans as starters in this year’s Midsummer Classic in Cincinnati, OH on July 14th.

Trout, the reigning American League MVP is putting together another fine season for the Los Angeles Angels. He has placed himself among the league leaders in home runs, batting average and his defense in the outfield has been amazing. Trout seems to put his name in the history books with every milestone. Back in April, he became the youngest player in MLB history to have 100 home runs and 100 stolen bases in a career at 23 years and 253 days old.

Frazier has been the lone star for the Cincinnati Reds in 2015 on a team that has a former National League MVP and several former All-Stars. He currently leads his team in batting average, home runs and RBIs and is on pace to have close to 50 home runs with over 100 RBIs if he stays healthy during the second half of the season. Frazier can make a strong bid for the NL MVP award if he keeps up his stellar play.

Both players should be in the conversation for the MVP awards of their respective leagues if they can stay hot through the summer (no pun intended). These Jersey boys are here to stay.
