BURBANK — The honor doesn’t get old for Freddy Sanchez. Having been chosen to take part in two previous All-Star games, the former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout was hoping to be considered this season after putting up solid numbers for the first half of the season. Sanchez, 31, received good news Sunday, as he was selected as a reserve by Philadelphia Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel to be a part of the 33-player National League team. “Obviously, it’s an honor to make the team,” Sanchez told mlb.com about his selection this season.
