By joining the American League team as a designated hitter, Michael Young of the Rangers is part of a small and select group.
Young is only the fifth player to make the All-Star team at three different positions, with the outfield spots considered one spot. The others are:
Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, at first and third base and outfield.
Hall of Famer Paul Molitor, at second and third base and DH.
All-time hits leader Pete Rose, at first, second and third base and outfield.
Former National League MVP Joe Torre, at catcher, first and third base.
Young previously made the club as a shortstop and third basemen. Manager Ron Washington has told Young to bring all his gloves for Tuesday's game at Phoenix. Washington indicated Thursday that Young could be the AL player allowed to re-enter the game if needed.
