BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. - As the fourth overall pick in the 1997 draft Baldwinsville native Jason Grilli was projected to have All-Star stuff someday. Sixteen years later Grilli has finally fulfilled that promise, earning his first selection to the Midsummer Classic in his first season as a closer for Pittsburgh.

YNN's Brian Mueller chronicles Grilli's journey to the top with input from his father, Steve, who also pitched in the Majors, and Jason's high school head coach, Mark Bader.
