Earthquakes Send Two Bay Area Natives to MLS All-Star Game

The San Jose Earthquakes currently stand alone on top of the MLS table, so it is not surprising that two of the eleven starters for the MLS All-Star game will come from the Quakes' starting eleven. The MLS All-Star game, which will be played on July 25th at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. against the reigning European Champions, Chelsea.

Take a look after the jump to see which players made it and where in the Bay Area they hail from.

The San Jose Earthquakes will be represented by Chris Wondolowski and Steven Beitashour in the starting eleven of the MLS All-Star team. Wondolowski, who was born in Danville, Ca., is not a surprise pick by any means. Wondo led the league in scoring in 2010 with 18 goals, and was tied for the league in 2011 with 16 goals. This season, Wondo has already found the back of the net 14 times and is once again leading the league in goals.

Beitashour is in this third year in the league and will be making his first All-Star appearance. The San Jose native was drafted by the Earthquakes in the second round of the 2010 MLS Super Draft. Beitashour led the team in assists last year with seven, and has already notched six assists this season which ties him for fourth in the league. The 25 year old right back has been a big part of the Quakes success this season and has earned this honor.
