Louisville, KY (WDRB) - Four former Louisville Bats who are now members of the Cincinnati Reds can add All-Star to their baseball resumes. Pitcher Aroldis Chapman, third baseman Todd Frazier, and catcher Devin Mesoraco will join pitcher Johnny Cueto on the 2014 MLB All-Star roster on July 15th. Frazier, Mesoraco and Cueto are making their first appearance on the All-Star roster.
St. Louis Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny will manage the NL All-Stars.
"To be picked by Mike, it's extra special for me because he knows what he's looking for in catchers," Mesoraco told MLB.com. "He knows who belongs and who doesn't as far as catchers go with him being as good of a catcher and leader back there as he was, I think that definitely means a lot."
"You have goals every year. You're always working on team goals. You work on the team goals and the team player you can be, then individual stuff usually takes care of itself. This first half, it pretty much has," Frazier told the MLB website.
The 85th Major League Baseball All-Star game airs Tuesday, July 15th on WDRB.
