Wakefield Named to All-Star Team

Tim Wakefield

Six members of the first place Red Sox were named to the American League All-Star team on Sunday. Among them is 42-year-old knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, who will be making his first All-Star team. He was personally selected by manager Joe Maddon, and why not? Despite an average 4.30 ERA, Wakefield sports a 10-3 record (he had just 10 wins all last season).

Here’s the full list of Sox players on the All-Star Squad:

Starting Voted on by Players Named by Manager
OF – Jason Bay SP – Josh Beckett 1B – Kevin Youkilis
2B – Dustin Pedroia RP – Jonathan Papelbon SP – Tim Wakefield

Congrats Tim!
