Sometimes dreams come true...
Tonight Russell Martin was in the starting lineup of the National League team at the 2007 MLB All-star game. Martin, in a vote, was favorited by the baseball fans among all the National League catchers.
Russell Martin becomes only the 2nd player from the province of Quebec to be on the starting lineup of the All-star game. Starting pitcher Claude Raymond was, before tonight, the only player from the province to ever appear on the starting lineup of an All-star game.
Every baseball player dreams as a kid to start the All-star game someday. For one of those kids, the dream materialized years later, tonight.
