All-Star Balloting Officially Underway

minnesotaThough we’re just 25 games into this 2014 season (that’s just 15% of the season for you mathematicians out there), Major League Baseball wants you to start getting out and voting.

As of today, All-Star Game balloting is officially underway, and once again it is the fans’ job to select those players who will be starting for the National and American League squads.

You can log on here if you would like to go ahead and vote (or you can wait until we see a little bit more of the season play out, like a reasonable person). The MLB allows 25 votes per email address, and if you have an account over at and are logged in, you can get an additional 10 votes. Also included in the balloting is the Home Run Derby Fan Poll, where you can select up to three stars you’d like to see competing in the annual long ball challenge the day before the All-Star Game.


The 2014 All-Star teams will be unveiled on the 2014 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show during the weekend of July 5-6, with further details to follow on The AL will have nine elected starters via the fan balloting program, while the NL will have eight fan-elected starters. Pitchers and reserves for both squads — totaling 25 for the NL and 24 for the AL — will be determined through a combination of “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by All-Star managers Mike Matheny (NL) and John Farrell (AL).

This year’s All-Star Game will take place on July 15 at Target Field in Minnesota.
