Yes, the All-Star Game "counts" so every part of it is important, but nothing beats the player introductions. All 30 teams have a representative. Fans of all ages, wait for their team's player to be called and cheer on their favorites.

This year is no different but it's extra special for Astros fans. Houston has three representatives -- manager A.J. Hinch, second baseman Jose Altuve, and pitcher Dallas Keuchel.

Hinch was the first member of the American League team to be introduced. Altuve was introduced with the starters. And, Keuchel got the starting pitcher treatment -- "And in the bullpen...from the Houston Astros, Dallas Keuchel."

Keuchel was preparing for his start in the bullpen with Royals catcher Salvador Perez.

This is A.J. Hinch's and Dallas Keuchel's first selection to the All-Star Game. Jose Altuve is making his third All-Star (2012, 2014, 2015), and his first start.

And here are the introductions, enjoy:
