MLB News: All-Star Voting is likely to include election day

Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that there seems to be an increasing probability that there will be a change in the All-Star game poll. In replacement of the current system, a election day will be set up where the fans will be able to choose the starter for the game. This is one of the possible changes in the collective bargaining agreement made by Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association. The proposed establishment of the election day is that, like every other year, there would be an online voting system in which the fans engage. After this period ends, the three best voters in each place will be placed on a poll for election day. Fans would then be able to vote their best choice on the vote for each position and the player with the most votes in each position would then be named the starter of the All Star game. The obvious reasoning behind this change is that both MLB and MLBPA see this lineup as a better way to engage baseball fans in sport, as well as social media as a whole. Other discussions have been made between the two organizations, including financial problems, an increase in prize money for the Home Run Derby and an expansion of MLB roster from 25 to 26 players. As part of the proposed expansion, there will be a maximum of 1 3 pots. This year's All-Star game is played on Progressive Field, which is the home…
