A former Rebel earned a nod to the Midsummer Classic. And a donkey.
Zack Cozart was selected Sunday as the National League starting shortstop in the 2017 MLB All-Star Game. He's hitting .322 with 9 HR and 33 RBI this season for the Cincinnati Reds. Cozart's average is top 5 in the NL and 8th in MLB.
So about the donkey: Zack's teammate Joey Votto said during spring training that he would buy a donkey if Zack made the All-Star team.
