Video: More on honorary bat boy Ted Kremer and his inspiring story

One of the best baseball moments of the season was delivered to us by Reds honorary bat boy Ted Kremer, a lifelong fan who has Down syndrome, and third basemen Todd Frazier.

On April 18, per the request of Ted, Frazier blasted a two-run homer in Cincinnati's route of the Marlins at Great American Ball Park. Frazier was greeted at the plate by an elated Ted, who exchanged high fives with anyone willing to exchange one with him, as well as giving Frazier a giant bear hug once the two were back in the dugout. Pictures of this iconic moment are sure to be treasured forever.

That night wasn't the first time Ted had served as the team's bat boy, though. Ted also served in that capacity during the 2012 season, too. It's safe to say those experiences impacted Ted's life just as much as they did the players he came in contact with. 

Check out the above video for more on this heart-warming story.
