Dodgers’ Ethier switches positions
Andre Ethier is starting in his first All-Star game — and he’ll be playing out of position. Since the fans didn’t vote a true center fielder onto the team — Milwaukee teammates Ryan Braun and Corey Hart are corner outfielders — the Dodgers right fielder will patrol center.
“The last time I played center field would have to have been, I think, college. That was in 2003,” Ethier said. “Wow. I get to play center in the AllStar game! I’m psyched.’’
