Tallahassee (WTXL) - On Sunday night, Major League Baseball released those lucky enough to make an All-Star roster. Madison County and Tallahassee Community College product Lorenzo Cain was one of those lucky few, as he was named one of the American League's starting outfielders.
Cain, the first former Eagle to appear in an All-Star game, received more than 12-million votes, the sixth highest total of any player in this year's fan balloting.
The outfielder is batting .305 for Kansas City this year, with six home runs and 36 RBI. The accolade is just another one for TCC, as last fall, Cain was the college's first former player to appear in the World Series, and the Eagles very proud.
"Lorenzo is well deserved of this award after what he did last year in the American League playoffs and World Series," said longtime TCC head baseball coach Mike McLeod. "I am very proud for him and his family."
The All-Star game is July 14th.
