KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

For the second time in his career, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is an All Star. 

Moustakas was the winner of Major League Baseball's Final Vote on the American League side. 

Moustakas leads the Royals in home runs with 25 this season and is on pace to shatter the franchise record for homers in a season. He's also hitting .275 with 54 RBI. 

Along with it being his second appearance in the game, it's the second time Royals fans have put him there. He also won the Final Vote in 2015. 

Moustakas joins pitcher Jason Vargas and catcher Salvador Perez as the Royals who will be part of the All Star festivities. He will also participate in the Home Run Derby, the first Royal to do so since 1991.
