Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda, who managed four National League All-Star teams, knows full well how tough it is deciding whom to select because there always is somebody deserving who gets left off.

"One year I wrote seven letters to ballplayers to tell them how badly I felt that I couldn't select them," Lasorda said.

Lasorda also recalled the year he didn't get Astros pitcher Joe Niekro into the game. "That's why every time we play in Houston, I get booed," he said.
