Brandon Inge and Shane Victorino got together to form a nick name in their co-campaign for the MLB Final Vote for the 2009 All Star Game in St. Louis. Well it worked as Inge will represent the American League and Victorino in the National League as the 33rd players on their respective squads.
Victorino edged out Pablo Sandoval for the final spot on the NL roster. Sandoval will likely make the team if Carlos Beltran is too hurt to play. With Beltran’s absence, Victorino may start as he would be the only true center fielder for the NL.
Congrats to Shane and Inge and hopefully to the “Kung Foo Panda” as Giants fans affectionately call Sandoval.
