(KSDK Sports) -- Matt Carpenter is ready for his first All Star Game in his first season at a new position. The Cardinals leadoff man is tops among second basemen in batting average and on-base percentage, and his consistency has been key in the offensive success of the team.

His defense has been up to the challenge as well. He has just 8 errors at his new position, and has been involved in a team-high 67 double plays.

His approach at the plate and his diligence in learning a new position have made him valuable to the Cardinals, and now he has a chance to help the National League win home field advantage in the World Series.
