From "Furcal replaces Reyes in All-Star Game" at Dodgers.com:
Furcal was on the Dodger Stadium field with his children, ages 2 and 4, and wife for the Dodgers players' family day after Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Cubs.
"I'm waiting for my family, and then I got lucky -- I grabbed my phone and [general manager Ned Colletti] called me and asked me what I'm going to do on Monday and Tuesday," Furcal said. "I said, 'I got a plan to go with my family to Miami.' He told me, 'No, you made the All-Star team.' It made me so excited."
