NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Thousands of kids dream of playing for Major League Baseball. But imagine if you had the chance to be instructed by a bona-fide Major League Baseball star. Well, in New Jersey you can.
"Frazier Baseball" which features camps, clinics and showcases was formed three years ago. It was started by brothers Charlie and Jeff Frazier, who both played professional ball and their youngest brother Todd, MLB's reigning home run derby champion.
But the lessons are not just about on the field skills.
"They have to be good in studies, this goes for everybody," Todd Frazier said.
His connection to baseball and his hometown of Tom's River were forever entwined when he lead his 1998 Little League squad to a world championship.
For the Frazier’s, baseball is a family affair. Their father Charlie Sr., along with mom Joan, were voted Little League parents of the year in 2015.
But this big leaguer has a simple rule for kids.
"For them to have fun, they have to understand, that it is just a game, that's the biggest thing baseball is, just a game,” Todd said.
