The ballot of summer classic is out! XD~
NEW YORK (AP)
Texas rookie pitcher Yu Darvish is among the American League choices for the final slot.
Hamilton drew a record total of more than 11 million votes to start in the AL outfield, along with Texas teammates Adrian Beltre at third base and Mike Napoli at catcher. A postseason star last year, Napoli has started only about half the time at that spot this year but still easily outdistanced Minnesota’s Joe Mauer.
Second baseman Ian Kinsler, shortstop Elvis Andrus, starter Matt Harrison and reliever Joe Nathan also made the AL roster from Texas. The two-time AL champion Rangers began the day with a major league-best 50 wins.
Catcher Buster Posey — the top NL vote-getter — outfielder Melky Cabrera and third baseman Pablo Sandoval from San Francisco overcame deficits to get starting spots. Giants ace Matt Cain, who pitched a perfect game in June, made the NL pitching staff.
By the way, C.C is on the roster, too but he’s been on the DL so he won’t make this road trip to Kansas for the All-star game this year!
