Roy Halladay, Shea Hillenbrand- You Are All-Stars!
"Halladay has been the most dominating pitcher in the league this season, however, we will sit down this week and make a decision on who will start the game" said American League manager Terry Francona. "There are three or four deserving players that we will look at."
"I know there's a lot of good pitchers out there right now and guys that are probably deserving. I'll just keep going about my business, and if it turns out that way, it's a great honor" said Halladay about his chances of starting the game.
Shea Hillenbrand was the second member of the Blue Jays selected. Hillenbrand, who is hitting .304 this season with eight home runs and thirty-seven runs batted in, was voted in by his fellow players as the reserved designated hitter.
"I thought all along that Shea had a good shot to make it," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "The thing is, he kind of came with the rap that he couldn't play defense. He's played third base as well as anyone I've seen this year. Wherever he got that rap, I don't know. I don't think it's deserved."
This years All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports, and the league that wins the game will have home field advantage for the World Series.
