Nats Harper ticketed for ASG in place of Stanton

Quote:
Bryce Harper is an All-Star, after all.

The Nationals rookie was chosen to replace the injured Giancarlo Stanton on the National League roster for Tuesday's game in Kansas City, making him the youngest position player ever selected to the Midsummer Classic.

The only two players younger than Harper in an All-Star Game were Dwight Gooden (in 1984) and Hall of Famer Bob Feller (1938).

"No words can explain it right now," Harper said after the Nationals' 4-1 win against the Rockies on Saturday afternoon in Washington. "It's exciting to go. I'm excited to get there and be around all the top guys in the country, of course, and all the top guys in baseball."

Harper replaces Stanton after it was announced that the Marlins' first-time All-Star would require arthroscopic surgery on his ailing right knee.
