Todd Frazier, Reds Infielder, Stops Pittsburgh Man From Choking

Mark Sheldon reports that Reds hitters Todd Frazier and (former Pirate) Ryan Ludwick had an interesting experience at lunch in Pittsburgh before Tuesday night's game against the Pirates at PNC Park. Frazier did the Heimlich maneuver on a man who choked on a bite of steak:

"I was talking to him and I see it out of the corner of my eye," Frazier explained. "I said ‘I think that dude is choking over there.’ He was a little obese and there were two women side-by-side trying to give him the Heimlich. [Ludwick] said get over there because I was the closest one. So I went over there and was yelling at them to get out of the way. They did and I gave two pumps and it came out."

Whatever happens in the actual baseball game, it looks like Frazier did the city of Pittsburgh a huge favor. As a thank you, the man paid for Frazier and Ludwick's lunch.
