All-Star Campaigns Heat Up as Polls Come to a Close
With just over 24 hours left in the 2014 All-Star voting period and many tight races throughout the league, many teams and fans are ramping up for the final push.
Recently some folks in the office came across this video, created by Cardinals fans, positioned as a rebuttal to the Jonathan Lucroy “political ad” released last month and I had to share it with you here:
I’ve got to hand it to them. It’s quite clever and well done…but I also hope it re-“energizes and motivates” Brewers fans in the final hours of the race to help #LockInLuc and all of your other favorite Brewers for this year’s team.
And, in all seriousness, it’s truly been great to see fans and teams really get into the races this year, taking such great pride in their teams, players and hometowns–all in good fun, of course.
So, if you haven’t already, go out there and do your part! Fans can vote for the Major League All-Stars online at Brewers.com through Thursday, July 3 at 10:59pm CT.
And, as a heads up for you loyal blog readers, you’ll want to be sure and follow @Brewers closely on Twitter tomorrow…we’ll be ramping up the final hours of the vote with #ThrowbackThursday photos and giveaways galore!
Then, on Sunday, tune in to the “Taco Bell™All-Star Selection Show” on ESPN at 6 p.m. CT, where the 2014 American League and National League All-Star teams will be unveiled. Immediately following the announcement of the AL and NL All-Star rosters, fans will begin voting to select the final player for each League’s 34-man roster via the 2014 All-Star Game MLB.com Final Vote Sponsored by Experian. Fans will cast their votes from a list of five players from each League over the balloting period.
