Frazier and teammate Ryan Ludwick were eating lunch in a downtown Pittsburgh restaurant last month when they noticed a man was choking .
The Reds third baseman rushed over to help two women who were performing the Heimlich Maneuver. Frazier stepped in and saved the man who was choking on a piece of steak.
To make sure people do not forget the incident, Frazier was sporting a new shirt Friday in the Reds clubhouse. The shirt, created by local company Cincyshirts.com , says "In case of choking, call Todd Frazier." It features a picture of Frazier performing the Heimlich Maneuver.
