Ned Yost was named to Ron Washington's coaching staff for the 2012 All-Star Game.
As you likely already know, the 2012 MLB All-Star Game is going to be held at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Baseball's rules dictate that managers from the previous year's World Series are the managers for the All-Star Game, and as such, Ron Washington and the retired Tony La Russa will be at the helm in KC for the All-Star Game.
On Wednesday, both La Russa and Washington announced which two managers will serve as coaches on their coaching staffs. Kansas City skipper Ned Yost was picked by Washington to serve on the staff, along with Oakland manager Bob Melvin.
Yost replaced Trey Hillman in 2010 for Kansas City as manager, and is signed through the 2013 season. Yost's Royals aren't enjoying much success in 2012, as the Royals sit eight games back headed into Wednesday night's action.
The 2012 All-Star Game will be held on July 10.
