Todd Frazier celebrates Home Run Derby win with WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier belted 39 home runs to win the 2015 Home Run Derby Monday, then celebrated his clubbing victory by hoisting the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Frazier bested Los Angeles Dodgers rookie slugger Joc Pederson in the final round to win the Derby in front of his home crowd, becoming only the second batter to win in his home stadium. He also joined Dave Parker and Eric Davis as the sole Reds to win the contest.
It’s been a busy summer for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, traveling from Chicago to the Bay Area to New York City to honor the Chicago Blackhawks, Golden State Warriors and the U.S. women’s soccer team, respectively. So it’s only fitting the title made the trek to Cincinnati’s Great American Ballpark for the All-Star Game festivities.
