Congratulations to Domonic Brown on being selected for his first All Star Game.
Dom will join Phillies teammate Cliff Lee on the National League Roster for the game on Tuesday, July 16th at New York’s Citi Field.
Going into Spring Training, Brown was a major question mark for the Phillies 2013 lineup. He’d had several big-league auditions, but they didn’t go particularly well. He’d struggled with nagging injuries. Overall, his performance hadn’t matched his potential.
Brown is bating .273 with 23 homers and 67 RBIs, both team highs. He ranks third in the National League in home runs and fourth in RBIs and extra-base hits. He credits the lowering of his hand location/position with his recent success at the plate. The confidence at the plate has also helped his defense. He has seven outfield assists, fourth-most in the NL.
Good luck in New York Dom!
Keep up the good work.
