Rye native named to American League All-Star team
Congratulations are in order to Rye native and Seattle Mariners pitcher George Kirby.
He is now a part of the American League All-Star team.
Kirby will replace Rays pitcher Shane McClanahan.
Kirby has seven wins this season and an ERA just over 3.
This year's All-Star Game will be played next week at T-Mobile Park in Seattle - so Kirby will be pitching in front of his home fans.
