Today, July 3rd, marks the last day that you can cast your vote for the players who you think deserve the chance to go to Minneapolis. With an array of talent to choose from, remember to cast your vote for the players you think are most deserving of being an All-Star. Take a look at who we voted on to be the starting position players in both the American and National League come All-Star weekend:
