PITTSBURGH -- Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson recently admitted that he hadn't been getting much sleep in anticipation of the announcement of the 2004 National League All-Star team.
Congratulations, Jack. You've made it. Now get some rest.
On Sunday, Wilson was named as a reserve to his first All-Star team. He joins starter Edgar Renteria of the St. Louis Cardinals and Barry Larkin of the Cincinnati Reds as one of three shortstops on the Senior Circuit squad.
"It's just an absolute honor," said Wilson. "It's something I never would have thought possible. It feels really good."
