                HIROSHIMA, Japan - Former Ball State right-handed standout Bryan Bullington (Madison, Ind./Madison) has been named to the Nippon Professional Baseball League's All-Star Series as a pitcher for the Central League in Japan. The All-Star Series runs July 22-24 between the Central League and the Pacific League.

                Bullington has been one of the top pitchers in the Central League for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. He owns an 8-3 record in 13 starts with a 2.18 ERA. He has tossed 90.2 innings, posting 64 strikeouts while walking just 22. He ranks fifth in the Central League in ERA and is second in the league in wins.

                Bullington signed on with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp in the offseason after making 13 appearances for the Kansas City Royals in 2010. He picked up his first career Major League Baseball victory last season after tossing 8.0 shutout innings against the New York Yankees as he allowed just two hits.

                Bullington was a three-year letterwinner for the Cardinals from 2000-02. He set the school's career records for wins (29) and strikeouts (357). He was named the Mid-American Conference Pitcher of the Year in 2001 and 2002. The Pittsburgh Pirates selected him with the first pick in the 2002 draft, making him the first Ball State and MAC player ever to be taken as the No. 1 overall selection.
