In his third MLB All-Star appearance, Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto, became the first Phillies player since Mike Schmidt in 1981 to hit a home run and just the fifth Phillie ever to accomplish the feat.

He joins Schmidt, Greg Luzinski, Dick Allen and Johnny Callison in going yard in the All-Star Game.

At the top of the 5th inning of the MLB All-Star game in Colorado, the Phillies catcher went deep off of Detroit Tigers pitcher Gregory Soto.

The homer made it a 4-1 game, but the A.L. would go on to add another run in the sixth, winning the game 5-2.

Realmuto ended the night going 1 for 2 with a homer and a strikeout.

Phillies pitcher Zack Wheeler also made a brief appearance in the game, entering the mid-summer classic in the game in the top of the ninth, throwing three pitches and recording a strikeout of the only batter he faced.

After throwing just three pitches, one has to wonder if the Phillies will open the second-half of the season on Friday with Wheeler against the Marlins, which would also allow him to come back and pitch at Yankee Stadium the following start.
