Todd Frazier did Cincinnati proud on Monday night. The Reds third baseman won the 2015 Home Run Derby at the Great American Ballpark, his home field, defeating Los Angeles Dodgers Joc Pederson 15-14 in the final round.
Frazier was out for a bit of revenge after falling in the finals of last year’s event. He was, once again, pitched to by his brother Charlie. Frazier needed just one pitch in bonus time to earn the victory and elicit a pretty sizable cheer from the hometown crowd. Check out his winning hit right here:
After taking a short jog to first base, Frazier relished in the moments after his victory and, as tradition dictates, lifting the WWE championship belt over his head.
In addition to Pederson, Frazier also took down Prince Fielder in the first round and defeated Josh Donaldson in the Final Four. He’s the second player, along with Ryne Sandberg, to win his own ballpark and the second player, besides Ken Griffey Jr., to win a Home Run title after placing second the year before.
