The 2016 "Vote Brewers!" campaign is underway!
The Milwaukee Brewers will need your help to fill the ballot boxes with All-Star votes to represent the Cream City in San Diego. Milwaukee fans year-in and year-out demonstrate that it doesn't take the largest market to be heard as they have voted for their favorite Brewers in impressive numbers.
It's once again time to ramp up and Vote Brewers! This season, eight Milwaukee Brewers players are featured on the ballot for the 87th Major League Baseball All-Star Game to be held on Tuesday, July 12 at Petco Ballpark in San Diego, California. This year Brewers fans will have the opportunity to show their overwhelming fan support by helping decide which players will be named to the Midsummer Classic through the exclusive, online-only Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot.
Brewers players on this year's All-Star ballot include C Jonathan Lucroy, 1B Chris Carter, 2B Scooter Gennett, SS Jonathan Villar, 3B Aaron Hill, LF Ryan Braun, CF Ramon Flores and RF Domingo Santana.
At Brewers.com, all fans voting 21 or more times for their favorite Brewers will be entered into a drawing to win a prize package that includes: four Field Box tickets to a mutually-agreed-upon game and a meet-and-greet with six-time All-Star Ryan Braun. There is a maximum of 35 votes per email address. More information and rules may be found at Brewers.com.
Those visiting Miller Park are encouraged to vote early and often via an online ballot station at the All-Star Polling District, set up during Brewers home games along the right field corner of the Field Level concourse (U.S. Cellular® Power Playground). In-park balloting at Miller Park has begun and continues through Thursday, June 30. Fans who vote at the online-stations at Miller Park will be eligible to win daily prizes.
The Vote Brewers! campaign will feature event staff decked out at home games in promotional T-shirts, and signage along the Miller Park fascia and behind the plate. In addition, media partners FOX Sports Wisconsin and Newsradio 620 WTMJ will be promoting the initiative on broadcasts, and the World Famous Klement's Racing SausagesTM will help distribute voting information around the city.
Both the National League and American League teams will have eight fan-elected starters. The pitchers and reserves for both will be determined through a combination of "Player Ballot" choices and selections made by the two All-Star managers.
Fans can vote for the Major League All-Stars online at Brewers.com through Thursday, June 30 at 10:59 p.m. CT.
