BALTIMORE – For the past four seasons, the Orioles have had multiple representatives at the All-Star Game.
This year, it’s first-timers Zach Britton and Darren O’Day as well as Manny Machado, who’s there for the second time and Adam Jones, who’s in his fifth game.
Ten different Orioles have made the team in the past four years: Chris Davis, J.J. Hardy, Chris Tillman and Matt Wieters are the others still with the team. Jim Johnson (2012) and Nelson Cruz (2014) are the others.
“It says something about the respect that the fans have for them around baseball. Obviously our fans do a great job voting,” manager Buck Showalter said. “It says a lot about the votes they’re garnering around the country, not just here.”
Jones and Machado were voted in by the players, and that’s something that Showalter respects.

“Being picked by your peers means a lot to them,” Showalter said.
The four All-Stars received their jerseys in a ceremony before the Game.
