Mike Napoli (2001-02), Mike Trout (2009-10) and Mark Trumbo (2006-07) bring CR Alumni MLB All Star selections to 85.

Major League Baseball released the rosters for the 83rd annual MLB All-Star game today. Cedar Rapids Kernels alumni Mike Napoli (2001-02), Mike Trout (2009-10) and Mark Trumbo (2001-02) have been selected to the American League squad with Napoli getting the start behind the plate. The trio of Kernels alum bring the total number of MLB All-Star selections made by Cedar Rapids professi0nal baseball alumni to 85. 33 different Cedar Rapids professional baseball alumni have been selected to the All-Star game rosters. This is the fifth time there has been three Cedar Rapids professional baseball alumni players selected to the same All-Star game (2012, 2007, 1991, 1984 and 1966). We have never had more than three appear in the same season. Lou Boudreau was our first All-Star and made six straight All-Star teams between 1940-45, the longest such streak by a Cedar Rapids professional baseball alumni.

Lou Boudreau (Cedar Rapids Raiders -1938) and Ted Simmons (Cedar Rapids Cardinals – 1967) lead the way with eight selections each. Trevor Hoffman (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1991) earned seven All-Star selections, Rocky Colavito (Cedar Rapids Indians – 1952) and Allie Reynolds (1940-41) made six appearances, Paul O’Neill (Cedar Rapids Reds – 1982) was selected five times and John Roseboro (Cedar Rapids Raiders – 1955) made four appearances at the mid season classic.
