2014 MLB All-Star Game: Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter and Mike Trout Represent New Jersey as AL Starters

New Jersey will be heard from rather loudly at Major League Baseball’s 2014 All-Star Game.

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, and New York Yankees great shortstop Derek Jeter will all start for the American League All-Stars on July 15. And all have some background in New Jersey.

Jeter, now 40, is playing in his final All-Star Game. According to DerekJeter.com, he has played 18 seasons with the Yankees, and has been a 12-time All-Star and won five Gold Gloves. Jeter was born in Pequannock, and grew up less than 30 miles from Yankee Stadium.

For all of his early accomplishments, Mike Trout is not quite 23. New Jersey Sports Heroes says Trout was born on August 7, 1991 in Millville, and was a pitcher, centerfielder, and shortstop at Millville Senior High. Keeping it local, the 12-year old Trout wore number 2 for his favorite player, Derek Jeter.
