Erick Aybar, the shortstop for the Los Angeles Angels, made his first All-Star team. His older brother Willy paved the way for Erick to play professional baseball, as Willy broke in as a major leaguer in 2005 with the Los Angeles Dodgers and went on to play five seasons in the majors. Erick is now in his ninth season with the Angels and has one Gold Glove to his credit. They are two of seven children who grew up in some of the poorer parts of the Dominican Republic.
