SPOKANE, Wash. — Ferris alum and Spokane native Andrew Kittredge is headed to his first MLB All-Star game.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Kittredge was at the Rainforest Cafe with his family in Disneyland vacationing when he got the call that he would be flying to Denver to participate in the contest.

Kittredge is 31 years-old and currently plays for the Tampa Bay Rays.

He has a 6-1 record this year, two saves, and a 1.47 ERA in 32 games. He's also held his opponents scoreless in 10 of his last 11 innings.

Kittredge was a late addition because Mariners pitcher Yusei Kikuchi and Yankees pitcher Gerritt Cole will both be inactive for the contest.
