Matt Harvey To Start All-Star Game On Tuesday
Here is the official proclamation from the Mets…
Matt Harvey has been named the National League starting pitcher at the 84th All-Star Game to be played at Citi Field tomorrow at 8 p.m. EST.
Harvey is the third Mets pitcher to start an All-Star Game. Dwight Gooden started the 1988 All-Star Game at Cincinnati and the 1986 Game at Houston. Tom Seaver started the 1970 All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
Harvey became the fourth pitcher in club history to make the All-Star team in his first full season in the majors. He joins Seaver (1967), Jerry Koosman (1968) and Gooden (1984).
Says Matt Harvey, “It’s definitely a huge honor and something I’m very excited about.”
Says Bruce Bochy: ”What a tremendous year he’s had. It really wouldn’t have matters what city we were playing in with the year he had.”
Bochy also jokingly said that Harvey will be limited to 100-120 pitches.
