Chavez sits fourth in AL All-Star voting

Chavez sits fourth in AL All-Star voting

There are only a few days left to cast ballots for the 2007 All-Star Game, and A's fans better get busy if they want third baseman Eric Chavez to start in the Midsummer Classic on July 10 at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Chavez has won six straight Gold Gloves, but he has never been to an All-Star Game. He currently stands fourth in the online balloting.

Chavez is hitting .266 with six home runs in June despite playing with an injury in his left rib cage. He has 12 home runs on the year.

Chavez is looking to make it seven straight Gold Gloves, and he has a fielding percentage of .970 this season.

Fans can cast their votes for starters up to 25 times with the Monster 2007 All-Star Online Ballot at MLB.com and all 30 club sites until Thursday, June 28 at 8:59 p.m. PT.

Fans again will be given the opportunity to cast an All-Star vote immediately following the 2007 MLB "All-Star Game Selection Show" presented by Chevrolet, which will be televised by Turner Sports on Sunday, July 1. Baseball fans around the world will be able to select the final player on each All-Star team via the Monster.com 2007 All-Star Final Vote.

Selecting the rosters isn't the end of the fun in 2007, either. Concluding the All-Star balloting process, fans will have the opportunity to participate in the official voting for the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player presented by Chevrolet at the All-Star Game via the Monster.com 2007 All-Star Game MVP Vote at MLB.com.

The All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports and televised around the world by Major League Baseball International. ESPN Radio will provide exclusive national radio coverage, while MLB.com will offer extensive online coverage and MLB Radio will have exclusive play-by-play coverage of the game on the Internet.
