2011 All-Star Game Rosters: Roy Halladay Tabbed For National League Start

The Philadelphia PhilliesRoy Halladay, in the middle of yet another Cy Young-worthy season, has received another honor: he was tapped by NL All-Star manager Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants to start the game, against Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Halladay will be making his eighth appearance in the All-Star Game, and his second as a Phillie. It will be his second All-Star start; he started the 2009 game for the American League as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, and was traded to the Phillies the following off-season. In so doing, he will become the fourth pitcher to start an All-Star Game for both leagues (the others: Randy Johnson, Roger Clemens and Vida Blue).

In his previous seven All-Star selections, Halladay has appeared in five of the games, without great success: he has alllowed seven earned runs in 6.2 innings for a 9.45 ERA, with no walks and four strikeouts. The NL will hope for a better outing from him Tuesday night.
