The Red Sox had three players selected for the 2013 All-Star Game: Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, and Clay Buchholz. They are the latest in a long history of players from the Red Sox to take part in the Midsummer Classic since the game started in 1933. Here is a complete register of every Red Sox All-Star:
Bobby Doerr made All-Star rosters nine times during his career, and was part of the 1946 American League squad that featured seven Red Sox.
Dave Ferriss and Bob Johnson made the 1945 team, but the game, which would have been at Fenway Park, was canceled because of war travel restrictions.
Boston's first MVP was Carl Yastrzemski, for a four-hit performance in 1970. He was an All-Star 18 times between 1963 and 1983.
The trio of Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez, and David Ortiz combined for 21 All-Star selections between 1998 and 2013, including eight straight for Ramirez, who was an All-Star every season with Boston.
