Troy Tulowitzki Named as National League Starter For The All-Star Game
July 7, 2013
Long Beach, Calif. - Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was the leading vote-getter among National League shortstops in fan voting, and will start for the National League in the 2013 All-Star Game on July 16 in New York City.
Tulowitzki will make his third All-Star appearance in 2013, after going in back-to-back seasons in 2010 and 2011 before an injury-shortened campaign in 2012. The Rockies star is hitting .347 with 16 home runs, seventh in the NL, and 51 RBI in 61 games while also providing his trademark outstanding defense.
With his third All-Star selection, Tulowitzki joins Jered Weaver and Evan Longoria as former Long Beach State players with three All-Star appearances. Jason Giambi has the most of any Dirtbag, a five-time All-Star, one of five former Long Beach State players to make an All-Star team, a list rounded out by Steve Trachsel.
