|Career highlights and awards|
Frazier played high school baseball as a member of "the Hornets", which is the name of the teams at Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Missouri. Frazier was offered a college scholarship in baseball, football, and basketball.
In 1981 while with the Yankees, Frazier tied a World Series record (with Lefty Williams) with 3 losses. Williams, however, is widely suspected to have thrown those games in the 1919 World Series (as part of the Black Sox Scandal), and furthermore, the third game Williams lost was Game Eight - the Series of 1919 through 1921 were best of nine affairs, leaving Frazier as the only pitcher to lose three games in a best of seven World Series.
Frazier currently serves as a television commentator for the Colorado Rockies organization. His son, Parker Frazier was drafted in the eighth round of the 2007 MLB Draft by the Colorado Rockies.
