Brewers, Twins, Loggers represented in All-Star Game


(WXOW) -- The MLB announced its 2013 All-Star rosters Saturday night, a little more than a week before from the game at New York's Citi Field.

A couple of Twins, Brewers and guys with local connections made the prestigious rosters. Only one of them will start as a position player.

That's the Twins' Joe Mauer with his sixth all star selection. Mauer will be the American League starting catcher. 2013 will be his first starting appearance since 2010. Minnesota pitcher Glen Perkins rounds out the Twins contingent on the AL roster.

A pair of Brewers made the National League squad as reserves. Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez both will make their first All-Star appearances.

There are a couple of other notable selections with ties to the La Crosse area. 

Tigers pitcher and former La Crosse Logger Max Scherzer will likely be the AL starting pitcher. Wisconsin native and UW-Stevens Point grad Jordan Zimmermann will be in the NL bullpen. Also, Royals outfielder Alex Gordon, brother of current Logger Derek Gordon, made the AL team as a reserve.
