PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Rutgers junior National Player of the Year candidate Todd Frazier (Toms River, N.J.) earned another First Team All-America honor on Wednesday, receiving First Team accolades by Rivals.com.
Frazier, a quarterfinalist for the Brooks Wallace Award, recognizing the National Player of the Year, was also named a First Team All-American by Collegiate Baseball last week.
The shortstop painted himself throughout the Rutgers record book in 2007, finishing in the top-6 in every single-season offensive category, excluding triples. He broke the Rutgers single-season record for home runs (22), home runs by a leadoff hitter (22), runs scored (87), walks (62), doubles (24) and total bases (187), all set this season. He also finished second in slugging percentage (.757), second in at bats (247), tied for third in runs batted in (65), fifth in hits (93), and tied for sixth in stolen bases (25).
Frazier has also placed himself on several Rutgers career record charts through just three seasons. He is the Scarlet Knights' all-time leader in home runs (42) and runs scored (210), and is second in walks (138) and total bases (434), and third in hits (241), slugging percentage (.625) and stolen bases (65), and fifth in runs batted in (152).
Frazier, who played with the USA Baseball National Team last summer, was named the BIG EAST Player of the Year at the conclusion of the regular season. He finished the season fourth in the nation in home runs (22), fourth in runs per game (1.38), eighth in walks per game (0.98) and 11th in home run per game (0.35).
Rutgers, which won the BIG EAST Regular Season and Tournament titles, tied the school record for wins in a season with a 42-21 record in 2007. The Scarlet Knights are currently ranked 30th nationally.
