In 2013, the Indians drafted the wavy-haired, redheaded outfielder fifth overall out of Loganville High School in Georgia. Frazier hit a school record 63 home runs in high school, led his team to a state title as a junior and was named Gatorade's National Player of the Year as a senior.
Big League Treatment: After signing with the Indians, Frazier came to Progressive Field before a game with the Washington Nationals. When the 18-year-old walked into the clubhouse, the team's veterans wore bright red Ronald McDonald wigs. "That's an everlasting moment for me," he recalls. "They took me under their wing and made me feel like I was at home."
Swing Shifts: Frazier struggled initially with the Lake County Captains. But he went back to the stance that got him drafted — the toe tap he used in high school — and ended the season with a .266 average and 50 RBI in 120 games. "I'm going to go out there and play as hard as I can," he says.
Georgia Peaches: Frazier and new Indians first baseman and outfielder Brandon Moss attended the same Georgia high school 11 years apart. The former Red Devils met six years ago and have remained close. "He's a very interesting guy and good role model," he says.
Country Clubbin': Frazier's iPod is like his baseball mood ring. When things are going well, he listens to rap music (Drake) but turns to country (Florida Georgia Line) when he's struggling. "Rap doesn't have as much of a meaning as country does," he says.
