On Sunday Atlanta Braves fans found out that their catcher, Brian McCann, will finally start an All-Star game after being elected by the fans as the starting catcher for the National League. This will be McCann's sixth All-Star appearance in his seventh year in the league. He has made the All-Star team each of his first six full seasons in the Majors.
McCann is coming off of an All-Star MVP performance in 2010 after hitting a clutch three-run double to give the NL the lead.

1B: Prince Fielder, Brewers
2B: Rickie Weeks, Brewers

3B: Placido Polanco, Phillies

Three more Braves have been selected to the All-Star game as player selections. Starting pitcher Jair Jurrjens and relief pitcher Jonny Venters will appear in their first All-Star game, and third baseman Chipper Jones will appear in his seventh All-Star game.
