LHS Frazier and GHS Meadows Were Big Hitters at Wrigley Field
Loganville’s Clint Frazier and Grayson’s Austin Meadows were credited with the win for the American team at the Under Armour All American Baseball Game at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Aug. 18.
Clint Frazier from Loganville High School and Austin Meadows from Grayson High School were given top billing at the Under Armour All American Baseball Game at Wrigley Field in Chicago this past weekend and, by all accounts, continued making their mark on the national stage.
According to John Manual, writing for baseballamerica.com, “Meadows and Frazier were the two most anticipated players in the game and didn’t disappoint.” Manuel reported that the way the American team won the 2012 Under Armour All-America Classic will be remembered, "thanks to Meadows and Frazier."
“The two Georgia prep outfielders, the two best prospects on the rosters at Wrigley Field, hit back-to-back extra-base hits and Frazier scored the winning run on a pair of wild pitches to power the American team, skippered by Billy Ripken, to a 7-6 victory against Larry Bowa’s National team,” Manual wrote.

As successful as Meadows has been in baseball, the GHS senior was just as comfortable on the football field as punter for the state champion Grayson Rams when they took the state title last season. Baseball, however, is reported to be his first love and Meadows has committed to Clemson.
In a separate story on mlb.com, Cash Kruth wrote about Frazier’s remarkable season, including the “impressive and winning note” in which he capped off his summer showcase circuit. Frazier’s 2-for-3 with two doubles earned him one of the two Under Armour Silver Spikes Awards. This comes on top of the prestigious 2012 Jackie Robinson Award that Frazier earned at the Perfect Game All-American Classic Award Dinner in San Diego last weekend.
