Five Braves Named To NL All-Star Team
The American and National League All-Star teams were announced on Sunday and the Braves have had five players selected to play for the National League All-Star team in this year’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
Atlanta will be represented by rightfielder Jason Heyward, second baseman Martin Prado, starting pitcher Tim Hudson, catcher Brian McCann, and super-sub Omar Infante, who was a surprise selection by NL manager Charlie Manuel.
Heyward and Prado will both start for the National League, assuming that Heyward recovers from his thumb injury in time to play in the game, while Hudson, McCann, and Infante will likely play in the game as well.
And if having five players on the NL All-Star team just isn’t quite good enough for you, Braves fans, you still have a chance to vote for Braves’ closer Billy Wagner in the balloting for the final spot on the NL All-Star team.
Congratulations to Jason Heyward, Martin Prado, Tim Hudson, Brian McCann, and Omar Infante on being named to the 2010 National League All-Star team.
And don’t forget to get those votes in for Billy Wagner, Braves fans.
Let’s make it SIX Atlanta Braves on this year’s NL All-Star team!
