Toms River’s Todd Frazier Leads USA To Gold Medal Game
How many accomplishments can one athlete have? Todd Frazier's trophy case currently includes a 1998 Little League World Series trophy, a World University Championship, 2 All-Star awards, and a Home Run Derby. After this weekend, Todd could add an Olympic Gold medal! Here's what the USA will have to do.
To put it simply, win...just one more. Todd batted cleanup today (4th), produced a double, a walk, scored a run, and provided fire and enthusiasm as the USA defeated South Korea 7 to 2. We'll need another effort like that Saturday.
Now, just Japan stands in the way of this incredible Ocean County athlete adding a Gold medal to his trophy case and bringing another big accomplishment back to our country. To date, the USA only has 1 baseball gold. I'm crossing my fingers that this will be number 2. It looks to be a great game. The USA and Japan played on Monday and it was very evenly matched. The game went to extra innings before Japan defeated the USA 7 to 6.
How do I watch the USA vs Japan for the Gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics?
The game will be played at 6 am eastern time this Saturday, August 7th. It will be broadcast live at NBCOlympics.com and with the NBC Sports app, which requires a cable subscription.
