PHOENIX -- Randy Johnson was named to his 10th All-Star Game on Sunday.
And while each of his selections have been an honor, this one holds some special significance for the 40-year-old, who plans to take his 8-year-old son Tanner with him.
"I'm excited about it," said Johnson, who is 10-6 with a 2.90 ERA this year. "My son's a little bit older now than he was the last time that I made it and obviously there was no guarantee that I was going to make it this year and surely no guarantee that I would make another one again.
"This for all intents and purposes could be my last All-Star Game, so I'm glad that he'll be able to be a part of that. Obviously it's an honor to represent this organization and it should be a lot of fun."
