In case you’re unaware of the voting process: Phase 1 of voting will determine two of the All-Star starters – the top vote-getter in each league – and which players will advance to the final round of the fan voting for the All-Star Game, which takes place on July 19 at Dodger Stadium.

The leading vote-getter in the American League and National League after Phase 1 will receive a spot in their All-Star team’s starting lineup. Additionally, the top two vote-getters at every position, and the top six outfielders, will advance to the finals of voting. So, currently, Tim Anderson is in a position to move to Phase 2 of voting, but he needs your continued help!

Fans can fill out a 2022 Chevrolet MLB All-Star Ballot as many as five times per every 24-hour period until Phase 1 of voting closes at 2 p.m. ET on June 30. You can vote at MLB.com, on all 30 MLB club sites, and on the MLB app.
