WATCH: Very few Reds fans show up for Todd Frazier tribute

Mets Todd Frazier

Todd Frazier played with the Cincinnati Reds from 2011-2015. Monday marked the first return to the Great American Ballpark for Frazier, now a member of the New York Mets.

It was announced before the game that Frazier would receive a well earned video tribute, but the Cincinnati faithful didn’t exactly come out in droves to see it.

This is quite unfortunate.

Frazier was also a two-time All-Star for the Reds, who made the playoffs twice during his tenure with the team. He certainly deserved a nice tribute from more fans.

Unfortunately, it’s not surprising, at all. Cincinnati entered Monday’s game at 8-26, tied for the worst record in baseball. It’s hard for any team struggling that bad to draw big numbers of people to the game, regardless of who’s making his return.
