Werth Last Minute Addition to All-Star Roster

Outfielder Jayson Werth is set to replace the injured Carlos Beltran on the NL's All-Star Team. Jayson joins Phillies already going -- Shane Victorino, Rauuuul Ibanez, Chase Utley, and reservist Ryan Howard.

Did You Know...
Jayson comes from a very sporty family? His dad played in the Cardinals' farm system in 1978, his mom competed in the Olympic Trials in the long jump and 100 meter dash, his grandfather and uncle were both MLB infielders, and his stepfather played with the Royals and Yankees from 1978-1982.

He was a first round draft pick in 1997? He was chosen by the Orioles.
