Voting has opened for this year’s All-Star game extravaganza in Cleveland this year. And it’s also got some new tweaks to this years process too.
This year, baseball has two votes: Primary and Starters election.
Here’s a quick explanation of each.
Primary: Open now through Friday, June 21 at 4. p.m. EST. This will look very much like the typical vote. Fans can pick All-Stars at each position. The top three vote getters at each spot (nine in the outfield) will then be sent along to the next round. Primary finalists will be revealed on MLB Network during the Astros-Yankees game on Friday, June 21.
Starters Election: This will be a 28-hour election used to determine the starters at each position for this year’s Midsummer Classic. Starters voting will begin at noon ET Wednesday, June 26, and end at 4 p.m. ET Thursday, June 27. Starters will be revealed at 7 p.m. ET Thursday, June 27.
