NEW YORK (AP) -- Evan Longoria had big plans for next week's
All-Star break with a trip to Las Vegas with some friends. Tampa Bay's rookie third baseman ended up with an even better trip. He's going to New York for the last All-Star game at Yankee Stadium.
Longoria and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Corey Hart were
elected All-Stars by fans in Internet balloting that ended today. Longoria received 9 million votes for the AL spot and was followed by Jermaine Dye of the Chicago White Sox, Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees, Brian Roberts of Baltimore and Jose Guillen of Kansas City.
Hart got 8 million votes and was followed by the New York Mets'
David Wright, Philadelphia's Pat Burrell, San Francisco's Aaron
Rowand and Houston's Carlos Lee.
