A dream has finally come true for Boston Red Sox veteran pitcher Tim Wakefield. After posting arguments about why Wakefield should and shouldn't be selected as an All-Star, the managers have spoken and selected him for the American League roster in St. Louis.

This is Wakefield's first All-Star game in his 17-year career (15 with the Red Sox). He received a tremendous standing ovation at Fenway this afternoon when his name was called along with his five other teammates.
Congrats to Tim Wakefield
