You love to see it.

According to sources, Adam Frazier has won the final vote and will be starting at second base for the National League in this month’s All-Star Game.

Frazier is having a career year, batting a career-best .327, good for second place in the National League behind the Reds’ Nick Castellanos.

Despite the dismal record the Pirates have shown in the first half of the season, it is no reflection on Frazier’s production. He’s been a bright spot on a team with very little to get excited about.

Frazier beat out finalists Ozzie Albies of the Atlanta Braves and Gavin Lux of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Frazier is the first Pirate to start in an All-Star game since Andrew McCutchen in 2015 and the first second baseman to represent the Pirates since the legend Bill Mazeroski suited up for the 1967 Midsummer Classic.

Huge congrats to Adam Frazier and the Pirates!
