Nats’ Zimmerman tabbed as National League reserve for All-Star game

Ryan Zimmerman had no real plans for Major League Baseball's All-Star break next week. His hometown of Virginia Beach is just a short car ride away, after all. But while Zimmerman will still catch up with friends and family, that reunion will instead happen at the All-Star game itself in St. Louis The Nationals' third baseman was named to a reserve spot on the National League roster for the July 14th All-Star game. It will be the first appearance for the 24-year-old, who earlier this season signed a five-year, $45 million contract extension with the Nats.
