Ortiz Has Over 4-Million Votes
Looks like Big Papi David Ortiz is headed to another allstar game. He leads in voting for DH with 4,398,197 – that’s more than twice as many as Lance Berkman of the Texas Rangers.
With the voting set to end Thursday night at midmight it looks like Papi may be the only Red Sox player voted in to a starter spot. Surely, other Sox players will be added to the AL allstar team.
The MLB All Star game is set for Tuesday, July 16th at 7PM. You can hear the game live on Sportsradio 92.9TheTicket.
