A few days late, but here is your reminder that voting for the 2021 MLB All-Star Game is officially underway! This season, the game will be held on Tuesday, July 13, at Coors Field.
Voting will be open through 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 24. Now, since it’s been two years since we last voted, I do have to remind you about the rule change from two years ago. Instead of all the starters being voted in right away, voting is broken into two stages. The voting that ends on June 24 will be the end of phase one.
From there, the top three vote-getters at each position (and top nine outfielders) in each league will advance to phase two, which will last from 9:00 a.m. on Monday, June 28, through 11 a.m. PT on Thursday, July 1, to help finalize the starters.
So for example, let’s say Max Muncy comes in third place for voting at first base. He’ll still have a chance. He’ll go against the top two vote getters in a brand new vote, and whoever comes out on top will be the starter.
Same goes for outfielders, except it will be the top nine vote getters, with the three highest advancing. Make sense?
