Todd Frazier rocking Godfather, Sopranos-themed cleats for Players’ Weekend

It appears on the eve of Major League Baseball’s second annual Players’ Weekend, some wiseguy from MLB offices may have ordered a thug to approach New York Mets third baseman Frazier and “make him an offer he can’t refuse.”

Easy cinema reference aside, Frazier is indeed using his long-used nickname as the inspiration for the cleats he will don during the Players’ Weekend games.

Frazier, who has gone by the moniker “Toddfather” for years, has opted to pay homage to two iconic Mafia characters with his cleats. One shoe bears the likeness of Don Vito Corleone from “The Godfather.” On the other, it’s none other than mobster Tony Soprano from the HBO classic, “The Sopranos.”

TODDFATHER of course will be emblazoned upon Frazier’s jersey as well.

Will the special jersey and organized crime character-inspired cleats set Frazier on a path to putting up a huge performance on Players’ Weekend? Don’t Stop Believin’.
