LOGANVILLE  —  In its 28th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, yesterday announced Clint Frazier of Loganville High School as its 2012-13 Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year. Frazier was surprised with the news by eight-time major league all-star and current baseball analyst, John Smoltz. Ceremonies were held yesterday in the LHS auditorium in the presence of teammates, coaches, family and friends.

“It was an honor to surprise Clint with the Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year award and welcome him into one of the most prestigious legacy programs in high school sports,” said Smoltz, a key member of the 1995 Atlanta Braves World Series championship team. “Gatorade has been on the sidelines fueling athletic performance for years, so to be recognized by a brand that understands the game and truly helps athletes perform is a huge honor for these kids.”
