>>2018 All-Stars:  Cain, Yelich, Hader Chosen

(New York, NY)  —  Lorenzo Cain, Christian Yelich, and Josh Hader have all been named to the 2018 National League All-Star team, based on votes from the players.  There could be a fourth Milwaukee Brewer playing in the mid-summer classic July 17th.  Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar is one of five players in the “Final Vote” competition, along with Dodger first baseman Max Muncy, St. Louis infielder Matt Carpenter, San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt, and Washington shortstop Trea Turner.  This is the first time in the big game for all of the Brewers but Cain.  He made it while playing for Kansas City in 2016.  Three days of all-star activities start next Sunday at Nationals Park in Washington, D-C.
