The 66th edition of the Little League World Series is currently in progress at Williamsport, Penn., with the championship game scheduled for this Sunday. Always an exciting event, the LLWS has featured a host of great young players who have gone on to find more success in the major leagues.

Current Cincinnati Reds infielder Todd Frazier is one such star. Frazier has been terrific in his role with the Reds, at times filling in for injured third baseman Scott Rolen and currently manning first base in the absence of injured Joey Votto.

Here are list of nine other current and former MLB players aside from Frazier who first made their names on the fields of Williamsport.
