You Make The Call

Friday, July 5, 1996

Some responses to our last call-in question:

'Is there one player whom you think most deserved to play in next week's major league baseball All-Star game but wasn't chosen?'

Jason Berthiaume, Honolulu: "Tim Naehring from the Red Sox. He's a solid player and he doesn't get a lot of name recognition. He's having a career year."

Randy Hiraki, McCully: "Denny Neagle of the Pittsburgh Pirates should've made it. He's 9-4, which is a better record than Glavine and Maddux. You've got to remember he pitches for a last-place team. He doesn't have as much support as the Atlanta pitchers, yet he has a better record."

Todd Alo, Honolulu: "Sammy Sosa should've been taken. He wasn't chosen because he's underrated. The stats don't lie. He hits home runs, drives in runs and steals bases.

Sanford Loo, Nuuanu: "The person who is very deserving is Rafael Palmeiro of the Baltimore Orioles. He's put up consistently high numbers throughout the years."
