MLB Network’s “Face of MLB” Competition Returns; Vote for #FaceofBREWERS Today

Major League Baseball’s most popular players will square off once again as fans decide which player from all 30 MLB clubs best represents the league in MLB Network’s second “Face of MLB” competition. Starting yesterday, MLB Network has set out to find the Face of MLB by creating a bracket-style tournament with results determined by fans on Twitter. Results will be announced each weekday morning on MLB Network’s offseason morning show Hot Stove at 8:00 a.m. CT.

In the “Face of the Franchise” preliminary round, fans can nominate a player candidate from each of the 30 MLB clubs by voting on Twitter with the player’s name and #FaceofCLUBNAME (so cast your vote for your favorite Brewer by using #FaceofBREWERS). MLB Network has created a bracket that seeds clubs against each other based on how they finished the 2013 season and beginning January 21, Hot Stove will ask fans to vote on Twitter each day and decide a winner for the day’s head-to-head player matchup until the Face of MLB is determined.

Fans voted more than 1.6 million times in the first Face of MLB competition, revealing emerging MLB stars including Jason Heyward, Jason Kipnis and Andrew McCutchen up against veterans like Derek Jeter, Paul Konerko and Dustin Pedroia. Nearly 700,000 votes were cast for the final round in which Cincinnati Reds MVP first baseman Joey Votto was named the Face of MLB after edging out Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp.

The Face of MLB bracket and voting details are available here.
