After what many Baltimore Oriole fans felt was a snub, former Mississippi State infielder Jordan Westburg is now heading to the 2024 MLB All-Star Game as a replacement.

On Tuesday, the MLB announced Westburg to fill in for Boston Red Sox injured third baseman Rafael Devers as part of the American League team. Days away from the midway mark, Westburg is batting .281 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI for the AL East-leading Orioles.

Westburg’s alma mater went to social media to celebrate the achievement of their former star.

After playing for Mississippi State from 2018-20, Westburg was selected by Baltimore with the 30th overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft. He was called up to the big leagues halfway through the 2023 season and is now heading to his first All-Star game, set for July 16 in Arlington, Texas.
