Teddy has served as the Cincinnati Reds bat boy four times and was honored with a baseball card in the 2013 Topps Short Print Series. He has been featured on national news programs. He was invited to be the former Speaker of the House John Boehner’s special guest for President Obama’s 2013 State of the Union. In 2014, Teddy was the Honorary Grand Marshall of the Red’s Opening Day Parade.
He was the subject of one of ESPN’s most popular E:60 Specials in 2013 called “Teddy Ballgame”. During the filming of the E:60 Special was when Todd Frazier, the then Cincinnati Reds third baseman, hit a home run at Teddy’s request. Todd had struck out earlier in the game and as Todd started to the plate the next time he batted Teddy said to Todd “I still love you. Hit a home run for me!” Todd replied, “Okay you got it buddy!” And Todd did hit a powerful home run. This was the beginning of a wonderful friendship!
