Berken, Markakis and Wigginton all would be first-time All-Stars, which would have added significance. Making an All-Star team is something they'll never forget, said six-time All-Star Miguel Tejada, the Orioles' third baseman.
"That would be really cool for them," said Tejada, who added that he would vote for Markakis, Wigginton or both. "I told Wigginton and Markakis the other day, you just go in there, walk around, see everything, watch as much you can, be part of it as much you can. There is going to be a lot of stuff to do, especially when you go for the first time. But you never get tired or anything; you enjoy everything."
