Jeff Kent Becomes All-Star
San Jose CA Mercury News 11Jul00 S2
By Daniel Brown: Mercury News

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- San Francisco Giants baseball player Jeff Kent has risen from an unknown second baseman to play in the all-star game. When he was traded to the Giants, fans openly questioned the move. But Kent has proven them wrong. After three consecutive seasons hitting 20 home runs and 100 RBIs, Kent joins such famous Giants as Willie Mays and Barry Bonds.

The LDS player is known for his work ethic and determination, focusing on his fielding and defense in order to support his solid hitting. He is driven to do well, and emphasizes the task at hand. Says team catcher Doug Mirabelli, "He's not much for small talk.... If he's talking to you, it's for a reason. It's not to be your buddy and your pal. It's pretty much strictly business."

Judging from the season's stats, Kent minds business well. He currently has 23 home runs, a .355 batting average, and leads the National League with 85 RBIs.
