A special honor for the former congressional intern who rushed to Gabrielle Giffords' side on January 8.

Daniel Hernandez will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star game, alongside baseball legend and Arizona Diamondbacks announcer Joe Garagiola.

MLB commissioner Bud Selig invited families of all the Tucson shooting victims to participate in the pre-game ceremony.

And another local connection to the All-Star Game, members of the Oro Valley Police and Golder Ranch Fire Department will serve as the color guard during playing of the national anthem.
