MLB All-Star Game Rosters: Jose Altuve Named Reserve For National League

Jose Altuve will keep rolling with his phenomenal second season with a trip to Kansas City to participate in the 83rd Midsummer Classic known as the 2012 All-Star Game. Altuve, the shortest player in baseball, has been playing big all season for the Houston Astros. With a .309 average, 12 stolen bases and proving to be quite reliable as a leadoff hitter in Houston, his spot on the team is well deserved.
