Reds' Duvall named to All-Star team

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Adam Duvall has been named to Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in San Diego.

Duvall will be the only Cincinnati Reds player in this year's game, as both Jay Bruce and Zack Cozart each had a shot, but ultimately ended up falling short.

The All-Star selection is a first in Duvall's Major League career and happens to come in his first full season with the Reds. 

"It's a tremendous honor, for sure, just to be considered," Duvall said.  "When I found out it was pretty exciting."

Duvall is second in the National League with 22 home runs and is near the top of the league with 59 RBI.

"I just want to represent the club well, go out and play hard and have fun with it," Duvall added.

It's the first time since 2009 only one Red was voted into the mid-summer classic.

The Major League Baseball All-Star game will be played next Tuesday night at 8:00PM and will be televised on FOX19 NOW.
