Two Former #VandyBoys Named to MLB All-Star Rosters

Vanderbilt will be well represented at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. Two former Commodores - David Price and Sonny Gray - were named to the AL All-Star team on Monday.

Awesome.
Awesome.

Don't be surprised if you hear a few "Who Ya With" chants at this year's MLB All-Star Game. Two former Commodores will be representing the Star-V in Cincinnati this year.

David Price and Sonny Gray were both voted to the American League All-Star team thanks to their peers. The two pitchers were announced as reserves on Monday night after earning enough player votes to cut their summer vacations short. Assuming the red-hot Chris Sale starts for the AL, they'll take up residence in the bullpen for next Tuesday's game.

This is Gray's first All-Star honor. Price will be making his fifth appearance at the midsummer classic.

Each player has been vocal about their support of Tim Corbin and Vanderbilt since leaving the program. Price made a point to attend multiple games during the Commodores' run to the College World Series Championship this summer. Gray trains back at the university during the offseason and recently snapped a picture with another prominent Vandy alum in Oakland:

They won't be the only #VandyBoys to take the field in Cincinnati during All-Star weekend. Tyler Beede and Tony Kemp were both honored with selections to the Futures Game, which takes place on July 12. They'll have the chance to help power the United States team against the World in the showcase exhibition.
