7.6.14 Video Reaction - Pirates Sending Three To All-Star Game

Updated: Monday, July 7 2014, 01:09 AM EDT

Major League Baseball announced today that Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen, Josh Harrison and Tony Watson have been named to the National League team for this year’s All-Star Game in Minnesota.

It marks the first time since 1990-1993 that the Pirates will be sending multiple representatives in four straight years to the
Midsummer Classic.

This is the fourth straight year McCutchen has been named to the All-Star team.

McCutchen led all National League outfielders with 4,519,440 votes and will become the first Pirates player to
start an All-Star Game since Jason Bay in 2006 when the city of Pittsburgh hosted the game.

Harrison, who was selected to the team by National League All-Star Manager Mike Matheny, is currently hitting
.298 (67-for-225), 12 doubles, four triples, five home runs, 25 RBI and 33 runs scored in 72 games.

The infielder/outfielder is the first utility player named to the N.L. team since Omar Infante while with Atlanta in 2010.

Watson ranks third among Major League relief pitchers with a 0.89 ERA.

Watson, who was selected by Pittsburgh in the ninth round of
the 2007 First-Year Draft, has 103 strikeouts since the beginning of last year, which ranks fourth among National League left-handed relievers.

McCutchen, Harrison and Watson will be joined in Minnesota by Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle, who will serve as a coach for the National League, and Assistant Athletic Trainer Ben Potenziano.
