That is right J.T. Realmuto has made his way to the All-Star Game July 17th at Nationals Park.
This wasn’t an easy accomplishment considering his new owner’s offseason moves which left him and Brian Anderson as the lone stars of Miami.
Realmuto ultimately wanted out of Miami but Jeter wouldn’t allow it. A back injury also sidelined Realmuto at the start of the season but once back in the lineup he has made an impact to the team.
As of Sunday, Realmuto is batting a .317 with 12 HRs and 44 RBIs, that batting average currently sits 9th in all of MLB, 5th in the National League.
Everyone was on board for the J.T. Train heading into Washington DC for the All-Star Game.
In fact, other Miami sports teams networked out via Twitter to push the star further.
The Miami Heat and Florida Panthers voted the maximum times and encouraged fans to do the same!

Now J.T. Realmuto isn’t starting the game but the honor of being voting in is still good enough.
Besides congratulating Realmuto on his All-Star status, he also is expecting his first child within a day or two.
