The New York Boulders and Good Samaritan Hospital of Suffern are teaming up to offer free COVID-19 vaccinations at Palisades Credit Union Park prior to the Wednesday, June 16, Frontier League game between the Boulders and Sussex County Miners and former Major League All-Star Todd Frazier, who is scheduled to play that evening.
Game time is 7 p.m. with the gates opening at 6 p.m.
Frazier, the 2012 National League Rookie of the Year with the Cincinnati Reds and an All-Star with the team in 2014 and 2015, signed with the Miners back on June 9. Released earlier this season by the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Toms River, NJ, native hooked on with the Team USA Olympic Baseball Team and is using his stay with the Miners to help him stay ready for the Tokyo Games later this summer.
Frazier also spent more than a year with the Chicago White Sox before he was traded in the middle of the 2017 season to the New York Yankees. He finished out that campaign in the Bronx before signing prior to the 2018 season with the crosstown New York Mets.
He spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons with the Mets, then split 2020 between the Texas Rangers and Mets.
Frazier appeared in 13 games with the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this season.
