Carlos Lee Gets RBI in All-Star Game

Brewers outfielder Carlos Lee put up some impressive offensive numbers when he was with the White Sox from 1999-2004. But he never made it to the All-Star Game because the White Sox had such talented players as Magglio Ordonez and Frank Thomas on the roster.

This year, however, there is no ignoring Lee, who has carried the Brewers with his big bat. During the first half, Lee hit .268 with 22 home runs and 76 RBIs and was invited to make his first All-Star appearance.

"I'm really excited for Carlos. He definitely deserves it," said Brewers manager Ned Yost, who was one of the coaches for the National League. "This is his first chance to come to an All-Star Game. He has been a force in our lineup. What I like most about him is his ability to hit. He is a great, smart hitter. He never panics. He longs to have runners in scoring position."
