2009 Chachi #49 Jayson Werth AS

All-Star Game: 2009 (Busch Stadium, St. Louis)
How He Got to St. Louis: Jayson was named to the NL All-Star squad by manager Charlie Manuel to replace the injured Carlos Beltran. He's well on his way to a career year, hitting .263 with 20 home runs and 56 RBI.
2009 All-Star Game Notes: Jayson entered the game in the top of the seventh, taking over for Shane Victorino in center field. In the bottom of the inning, he struck out against Jonathan Papelbon. Jayson also made a nice running catch in center to end the top of the ninth. He was in the on-deck circle in the bottom of the ninth when Mariano Rivera induced Miguel Tejada to pop up to second base, ending the game.
