The results are in, and three Texas Rangers will be part of the American League starting team in baseball's All-Star Game.

Never before have the Rangers fielded so many All-Star starters.

Outfielder Josh Hamilton got more than 11 million votes, and that's a new fan voting record.

Catcher Mike Napoli and third baseman Adrian Beltre were also voted to the starting team.

Four other Rangers were named as reserves: Pitcher Matt Harrison, closer Joe Nathan, shortstop Elvis Andrus and second baseman Ian Kinsler.

They will all be joined by their skipper Ron Washington, who manages the American League squad.

The All-Star Game is July 10 in Kansas City.
