Outfielder Jermaine Dye is the first Kansas City Royal to be voted a starter in the all-star game since Bo Jackson eleven years ago. Dye will start for the American League Tuesday in Atlanta, where he began his career. Dye finished second in the voting among American League outfielders, behind only Bernie Williams of the Yankees. No other Royal finished higher than fifth in the voting at any position. Cardinals first baseman Mark McGwire has been voted to the all-star team for the 8th time, and his third time as a Cardinal. McGwire will be making his 12th all-star appearance overall. He says he will take part in Monday’s home run derby in Atlanta.
