Toms River native Todd Frazier, now a member of the Cincinnati Reds, will participate in Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby as part of the 2014 MLB All Star Game festivities.

"It's pretty cool. I'd like to thank Tulowitzki for even considering me," Frazier told Cincinnati.com. "It's going to be a lot of fun, especially making the All-Star team, and now there's even more excitement the day before. Hopefully I don't put a goose egg up there, hopefully I can represent a little bit."

Frazier will be the first members of the Reds to participate in the derby since Ken Griffey, Jr. in 2000, the report said.

Frazier is currently ranked fifth in the National League for home runs, with 17.

At the derby, Frazier will be joined by his older brother, Charlie, who is his batting practice pitcher and pitches to him frequently when he's home, the report said.
