LOGANVILLE, Ga. - - With family, teammates, classmates, and friends watching, Clint Frazier of Loganville accepted the Gatorade National High School Baseball Player of the Year award at Loganville High School Tuesday.
Frazier hit .485 with 17 home runs and helped the Red Devils make it to the quarterfinals of the state baseball playoffs. He's signed a letter of intent with the University of Georgia, but it's likely his trip to New Jersey and the MLB draft Thursday will signal the beginning of his professional career.
Frazier is expected to be drafted very high, and that's no surprise to anyone who has seen him play. Loganville coach Jeff Segars told 11 Alive "he's special". "I first saw him in the eighth grade, and you could tell then he was special."
