    Narron named coach for All-Star Game

    NEW YORK -- A baseball lifer, Reds skipper Jerry Narron has seen many things unfold on a field as a player, coach and manager.
    But never in an All-Star Game setting. That will soon change.

    On Thursday, Narron was named a coach on the National League All-Star team.

    "Twenty-some years in the big leagues, first time. I sure wasn't going to make it as a player," said Narron, who was a career .211 hitter from 1979-87.

    Narron received the invitation earlier by phone this week from Astros manager Phil Garner, who will run the NL team by virtue of winning the NL Championship last season.

    The 2006 All-Star Game will be played July 11 at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

    The 50-year-old Narron, who is 85-80 (.515) since taking over the Reds last June, planned to spend the All-Star break with two of his children in Cincinnati. He didn't mind altering his itinerary. His 14-year-old son, Connor, will accompany him to Pittsburgh.

    "I'm thrilled and honored," Narron said. "I think it says as much about our organization, our coaching staff and our players than it says about me. Just the way we've been playing. I really think it's a nice honor for the organization."

    Predicted by many to finish last in the NL Central, the Reds have contended all season. For the past two months, Narron's club has gone 39-34 and has been in either first or second place.

    The last Reds manager to coach in the All-Star Game was Jack McKeon in 1999 at Fenway Park.

    Congratulations. Thats a great honor for him and the Reds.

    Maybe Brandon Phillips will have a shot at making the NL squad now.

    Do you have any "inside information" Mr. Phillips?

    He definitely deserves it, probably should be Phillips and Arroyo representing the Reds

    Unfortunately, Narron's selection has fit the criteria that every team must be represented so Bronson and Brandon can stay home.

    I remember a news story saying that Miley was going to be on the coaching staff but he was fired before the game, so he couldn't go. But that was last year....
    Tom Shearn... who knew?
