ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Not surprisingly, Vladimir Guerrero received a loud ovation from the crowd here at Angel Stadium as he was introduced as a starter for the All-Star Game.

Guerrero trotted out to the third base line with his teammates and took off his cap, spinning around to say hello to the fans. Some of the Angel fans helping to hold the huge American flag in the outfield waved at him.

Guerrero said before the game that he was excited to be in this year's All-Star Game.

"I’m really happy," said Guerrero in the clubhouse before the game. "They gave me my old place where I used to be and that’s pretty cool. It’s a good thing it’s in Anaheim. I’m glad to be back here. It feels good to be back in the All-Star Game."

Josh Hamilton received a nice cheer too, as he was introduced just before Guerrero.
