Reds Batboy Teddy Kremer Wants Pizza and Gets Pizza

Last Thursday's game was an emotional baseball moment as Todd Frazier allows their batboy attain the simplest things he wants - pizza and a home run. 



The Reds Batboy who has a down syndrome, had requested Todd Frazier for a homerun at the 6th inning last Thursday. Luckily, he scored a 420-feet home run where they had an 11-1 lead. 

"I started smiling even before I hit home plate because I knew it," Frazier said. "They said he forgot to pick the bat up, so the umpire was yelling at him. ... You can't get mad — even if you have a terrible day. How can you be mad when you've got a guy like that around?"

"Teddy’s awesome, this is the second time he’s been the batboy since I’ve been here," Red shortstop Zack Cozart said.

So where's the pizza in the story? 

Well, if you watch baseball in Cincinnati, you would know that if the Reds hit a score of 11 runs, everyone gets free pizza from local favorite La Rosa's.
