Carlos Lee in All-Star Game

From Adam McCalvy at MLB.com:

Carlos Lee has always been a serious run producer, but he'd never been an All-Star.

"I had a chance, twice," said Lee, who was a productive hitter for the White Sox in each of the last five seasons. "But it didn't happen. That's OK, I just kept trying."

The effort paid off Sunday.

Lee, the Brewers' left fielder and the current Major League RBI leader, was voted by his peers as a reserve for the National League squad and is headed to the 76th All-Star Game. It's the first time since 2001 that the Brewers have only one All-Star player, but manager Ned Yost will also be in attendance as a member of NL manager Tony LaRussa's coaching staff.

Lee will also be in the Home Run Derby.
