The Colorado Rockies will host the 2021 Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Coors Field on July 13. While the game itself may be more than a month away, the first step to see which players will represent the American and National Leagues has already been taken.
On Thursday, MLB and Google launched the first phase of voting for the 2021 Midsummer Classic. In that phase, fans from around the world can vote for their favorite MLB players exclusively online and via mobile devices at MLB.com, the MLB App, through individual team websites, and on Google Search (in the United States and Canada only). The voting period for this phase of the balloting will end at 2 p.m. (Mountain time) on Thursday, June 24. That’s a two-week window for voting in Phase 1 of the All-Star Game balloting.
On Sunday, June 27, at 10 a.m. (Mountain time), the 2021 Google MLB All-Star Ballot Finalists Show will be broadcast on MLB Network and reveal the top three vote-getters in the AL and NL for each position. Those three players will move on to the second phase of voting, which will determine who fans select to start in Denver.
Here is an important thing to know about voting. According to a press release about the voting procedures, “During the initial voting period, fans can 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.”
