Dee Gordon can now officially call himself an MLB All-Star. After Sunday’s 8-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies, Gordon got the news that he would be one of four players representing the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2014 All-Star Game.
Gordon will join Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Yasiel Puig at the game in Minnesota. Kershaw said he was pleased to see Gordon selected for the game and knows the long road it took the second baseman to get to this point. Josh Beckett also chimed in on Gordon making the All-Star team and said it’s an achievement that can’t be taken away from him.
For Gordon it was a long road getting an All-Star selection after being sent down to the minors last season and changing positions from shortstop to experimenting in the outfield before finally settling in at second base. He’s been a vital part of the Dodgers’ success this season and has brought stability at the top of the order.
