MLB All-Star voting opens online


Voting has begun for the 2021 MLB All-Star Game.

Fans can access online ballots by searching for “MLB All-Star vote” or entering the name of the player they want to vote for in a partnership between MLB and Google. Voting is available at MLB.com, all 30 team websites and the MLB app through 4 p.m. ET on June 24.

Fans may submit up to five ballots per 24-hour period on MLB platforms, and can vote for every position, or up to 17 unique players per day on Google.

On June 27 at noon ET, the top three vote-getters at catcher and in the infield, and the top nine in the outfield in each league will be announced. Those players will make up the list of finalists from which fans can vote to determine who will start in the 91st All-Star Game, which will be played July 13 in Denver.

Phase 2 voting will begin at noon ET June 28 and run through 2 p.m. ET on July 1. Vote totals from the first phase do not carry over, and the leading vote-getters in the second phase will be named starters. The results will be announced later July 1, with the reserves named on July 4.

In Phase 2, fans may vote once on MLB platforms and submit up to 17 unique player votes on Google.

Dave Roberts of the Los Angeles Dodgers will manage the National League All-Stars, and Kevin Cash of the Tampa Bay Rays will lead the American League squad. Roberts’ Dodgers defeated the Rays in the 2020 World Series in six games.

The All-Star Game returns after a one-year absence. The 2020 game, scheduled to be played at Dodger Stadium, was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Atlanta Braves were scheduled to host the 2021 game, but MLB relocated it to Denver after Georgia lawmakers passed a restrictive voting bill.
