Three Brewers Named All-Stars

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- For the first time in team history, three Milwaukee Brewers will be starting in the All-Star game.

Outfielder Ryan Braun, first baseman Prince Fielder and second baseman Rickie Weeks were all named to the National League squad Sunday morning.

It will be the fourth All-Star Game for Braun, who led all National League players in voting. Fielder is a three-time All-Star, but first-time starter. Weeks is an All-Star Game rookie.

The All-Star game will be played July 12 in Phoenix. The league that wins gets home-field advantage in the World Series.

This is the sixth straight season that the Brewers have sent at least three players to the All-Star game.
