David Travis Fryman (born March 25, 1969 in Lexington, Kentucky) is a former third baseman and shortstop in Major League Baseball. From 1990 through 2002, Fryman played for the Detroit Tigers (1990–1997) and Cleveland Indians (1998–2002). He batted and threw right-handed.

Baseball career

Fryman started his baseball fame in High School playing at a storied Tate High School, in Pensacola, FL. Fryman was the starting third basemen for Detroit before joining the expansion Arizona Diamondbacks via trade following the 1997 baseball season. Two weeks later, he was then traded again, along with pitcher Tom Martin, to the Indians for third baseman Matt Williams, without ever having played a single game for the new Diamondbacks franchise.

Fryman had his best season in 2000. He established career highs in batting average (.321), slugging percentage (.516), on base percentage (.392), hits (184), doubles, and runs batted in. Additionally, he only made 8 errors in the field and had a 60-game errorless streak, on his way to winning a Gold Glove Award.

In 2002, he had the lowest range factor of all major league third basemen (2.31), as well as the lowest zone rating (.680).

In a 13-season career, Fryman posted a .274 batting average with 223 home runs and 1022 RBI in 1698 games. Fryman retired after the 2002 season due to injury. With 5 trips to the All Star Game, Fryman is the most distinguished alumnus of the Fayetteville Generals.

Fryman became the manager of short-season Class A Mahoning Valley Scrappers in 2008. It was the first managerial job for Fryman, who had worked with the Tribe as an infield instructor during spring training.

On October 19, 2009, Fryman was named as a finalist for the managerial spot with the Cleveland Indians.

Fryman has three children, Mason, Brandon, and Cole.
