James Gandolfini Honored by Reds’ Todd Frazier, Who Changes At-Bat Music to ‘Sopranos’ Theme (Video)

The Sopranos was one of the most critically acclaimed television shows of all time and, on Monday, series star James Gandolfini passed away.

If you’re not familiar with the show, it revolved around a New Jersey organized-crime family, a modern-day take on the mobster genre. Well, it just so happens that Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is a Jersey boy — he played on the team from Toms River, N.J., that won the 1998 Little League World Series —  and decided to honor Gandolfini’s legacy Thursday.

Frazier followed through on his promise, and used the show’s theme song — the Chosen One mix of Alabama 3’s “Woke Up This Morning” — as his at-bat music for the day. Check it out in the video below.
