Frederick Charles Freeman (born September 12, 1989) is an American-Canadian professional baseball first baseman and third baseman for the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB). He has been with the Braves organization since he was drafted by them out of high school in 2007. He made his MLB debut in 2010. He is a two-time MLB All-Star.
Freeman's parents are Ontario natives. His mother was from Peterborough, while his father is from Windsor. Because Freeman's parents were both born in Canada, Freeman himself holds Canadian citizenship in addition to American citizenship.

As a senior in 2007, Freeman hit for a .417 batting average and had a 6–1 win-loss record as a pitcher. The Orange County Register named him its 2007 player of the year.
