Kurt Suzuki made his first appearance in the MLB All-star game Tuesday.
Although the Baldwin high grad didn't log an at-bat, the 30-year old did make a defensive appearance in the top of the 9th inning, fittingly, to catch for his Twins' teammate, pitcher Glenn Perkins.
The duo retired the side and Suzuki became the second position player from Hawaii to play in the midsummer classic, joining Shane Victorino (2009,2011).
Suzuki caught up with our Mike Cherry prior to the game.
