After having what would have been an All-Star season cut short with a devastating ankle injury in 2011, Buster Posey will appear in his first ever MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday. His .289 batting average and 43 RBI this season were enough to solidify a position as the National League starting catcher.

At this time last year Posey couldn't even walk. So for him to be back at the major league level as one of the Giants' offensive leaders and to be starting the MLB All-Star Game is "definitely special" Posey said Monday.
