Ted Kremer, the Reds batboy with Down Syndrome, gets all 3 wishes

May 17, 2013

Ted Kremer was born with Down Syndrome and won an opportunity to be a bat boy for the Cincinatti Reds, his favorite baseball team. The gig was supposed to be for one night, but his bright personality brought him back more than once.

Ted was invited to be the bat boy in a game against Miami. Ted asked for three things from his teammates. 11 runs, 11 strikeouts, and a Todd Frazier home run. And that is exactly what he got.

The Reds won the game 11-1, and there were 11 strikeouts. But the biggest moment came in the 6th inning. Just before Frazier was preparing for his next at bat. Ted said to him, "C'mon, hit me a home run, I love you."

Frazier responded, "I love you too. I'll hit you one." And he did just that. Watch the view clip below to see Ted's reaction after the home run.

All the players on the team love Ted and the positive energy he brings to the dugout.

"Teddy's awesome, this is the second time he's been the batboy since I've been here," shortstop Zack Cozart said. "Last year I think we hit like seven home runs when he was here and this year we get 11. He just brings a lot of joy, he's always happy, running around, telling everyone 'great job.' He's telling Frazier to hit a home run and he does it. It's little stuff like that, he keeps the dugout pretty positive."
