When you hear the word “All-Star” your first thought probably isn’t “adversity.”

It’s probably “standout season”, or perhaps “hard worker” or maybe even the “best of the best.” While all are certainly fair descriptions of the Indianapolis Indians’ 2013 stellar cast of All-Stars, none may be truer than adversity.

The theme was echoed by the Tribe’s three International League All-Star selections who will be making the trip to Reno, Nevada for Wednesday’s Midsummer Classic, including the contest’s starting catcher, Tony Sanchez, ace left-hander Kris Johnson and right-handed closer Vic Black.

The theme was echoed, yes, but not in the sense most might think.
