Chris Young Named to National League All-Star Team
Created: 7/6/2007 10:42:02 AM

Former Princeton two-sport standout, Chris Young, has been elected to the 2007 National League All-Star Team � becoming just the sixth Ivy Leaguer ever to be named. The first five were Lou Gehrig (Columbia, N.Y. Yankees, 1933-39); Red Rolfe (Dartmouth, N.Y. Yankees, 1937-40); Ron Darling (Yale, N.Y. Mets, 1985); Brad Ausmus (Dartmouth, Detroit, 1999); and Mike Remlinger (Dartmouth, Atlanta, 2002).

Young heads to the "Midsummer Classic" after winning the National League's portion of Major League Baseball's Final Vote. He received over 4.5 million votes, the most of any candidate in the Final Vote's five-year history.

The 6-10 pitcher is 8-3 and has a 2.00 ERA in 17 games this season and his team is 12-5 when he starts.

Young currently leads the National League in opponent batting average and earned runs average. Both numbers dropped yesterday when he pitched seven scoreless innings against the Florida Marlins. Young has not lost since May 12 vs. St. Louis.

The 78th All-Star Game will be played at San Francisco's AT&T; Park on Tuesday, July 10.
