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.
