NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) Current Mets manager Terry Collins and former skipper Davey Johnson have been selected as coaches for next month’s All-Star game at Citi Field.

Johnson, currently Washington’s skipper, managed the Mets to their last World Series title in 1986. They were picked Thursday by San Francisco’s Bruce Bochy, the NL’s manager.

Collins’ Mets currently boast a record of 24-37, while Johnson’s Nationals sit at 32-32.

Detroit’s Jim Leyland, the AL manager, also chose coaches with Mets’ ties: Robin Ventura of the Chicago White Sox and John Gibbons of the Toronto Blue Jays. Ventura played for the Mets’ last NL pennant winner in 2000 and Gibbons is a former Mets player and minor league manager.

The All-Star game is July 16.
