July 2, 2012
Long Beach, Calif. - Former Long Beach State star and National Player of the Year Jered Weaver has been selected for his third MLB All-Star game appearance, coming off another outstanding start during the 2012 campaign for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Last year's runner up for the American League Cy Young, Weaver has a 9-1 record with an AL-best 2.13 ERA over 14 starts this season, and threw a no-hitter earlier this season against the Minnesota Twins, the first of his career.
Weaver's selection as an All-Star is the third of his career, as the Angels' hurler was selected in both 2010 and 2011. The Golden Spikes award winner in 2004 with Long Beach State, Weaver led the nation in wins (15) and strikeouts (213) with a 1.62 ERA, leading Long Beach State to the Super Regionals.
Long Beach State has three other former All-Stars currently active in the major leagues. Troy Tulowitzki and Evan Longoria are both currently on the Disabled List, while Jason Giambi is in the midst of his 18th season in the bigs with the Colorado Rockies. Giambi was a five-time All-Star, the most of any former Dirtbag.
