CHICAGO - Alexei Ramirez of the Chicago White Sox was named the shortstop on The Sporting News American League All-Star Team, as voted on by a panel of 326 major-league players, 25 managers and 24 general managers.

Ramirez, 29, hit .282 (165-585) with 29 doubles, 18 home runs and 70 RBI in 156 games with the White Sox in 2010. He is the third shortstop in White Sox history to be honored by The Sporting News first since Luis Aparicio in 1970.

Ramirez led all AL shortstops in average, home runs, slugging percentage (.431) and total bases (252) and ranked second in RBI, third in runs scored (83) and tied for third in doubles. He also led the league with 768 total chances, the most by a Sox shortstop since Ozzie Guillen in 1989 (806).

Ramirez is the first White Sox player to be named to The Sporting News All-Star Team since Joe Crede (third base) and Jermaine Dye (outfield) in 2006. He also joins Aparicio (1968, '70) and Luke Appling (1936, '40 and '43) as the only three White Sox shortstops to garner the honor.
