Freeman’s early life

Frederick “Freddie” Charles Freeman was born on September 12, 1989, in Fountain Valley, CA. His parents are both Canadian, but his grandfather moved back and forth from Canada to California a few times because of his job. Freeman’s father was in Canada for 15 months before traveling back to California for good.

According to Sports Illustrated, Freeman states, “I'm thankful for those 15 months because that's when my dad met my mother. Long story short, my parents got married in Oshawa a few years later and made their home in California”.

Freeman spent most of his adolescent life in California. He attended El Modena High School in Orange, CA. Freeman does not go to college because the Atlanta Braves drafted him in the second round of the 2007 MLB June Amateur Draft.

Freeman’s career

Freddie Freeman played for 5 Minor League teams from 2007 to 2010. He played for the Gulf Coast League, which is located in Kissimmee, FL, before moving on to four other Minor League teams. Freeman debuted for the Atlanta Braves on September 1, 2010. Freeman has done nothing, but improve year after year.

This year is no different. According to ESPN, Freeman has “been absolutely on fire during the entire month of April, and the 27-year-old is certainly a player who could be on his way to a massive season as he tries to follow up his 34-homer effort of 2016”. The Atlanta Braves are hopeful that Freddie will have a long career with them.

Freddie Freeman was relieved after Friday night’s win against the Milwaukee Brewers. Freeman stated, "I was just thankful to get another opportunity," "I was pretty terrible the first eight innings.” The first baseman is hopeful that he will have a better game shortly.
