With All-Star balloting set to end tonight at 11:59 p.m. (ET), five positional races are set up for down-to-the-wire finishes, including the starting spot at third base in both leagues, in fan voting for the 2017 MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard. The 2017 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot, available exclusively online via MLB.com, Club sites and mobile devices, closes tonight, setting the stage for Sunday’s official announcement of the American League and National League All-Star Teams on the “Esurance All-Star Selection Show” on ESPN at 7:00 p.m. (ET) – prior to the network’s 8:00 p.m. (ET) “Sunday Night Baseball” telecast featuring the Washington Nationals at the St. Louis Cardinals.

In the American League, a triumvirate of third basemen is vying for the start with less than 60,000 votes separating all three players. Miguel Sanó (MIN) continues to lead the way with 1,764,734 votes, followed very closely by José Ramírez (CLE – 1,730,869) and Josh Donaldson (TOR – 1,671,408). A second tight three-player race in the AL balloting is for the designated hitter spot, where new leader Corey Dickerson (TB – 1,616,809) holds a small edge over both Nelson Cruz (SEA – 1,557,747) and Edwin Encarnacion (CLE – 1,505,226).

The National League has three of its own close races coming down the stretch, including at first base where Anthony Rizzo (CHI – 1,915,790) is trying to catch Ryan Zimmerman (WSH – 1,989,104) and trails by less than 75,000 votes. At third base, Nolan Arenado (COL – 2,426,431) is vying to hold off Kris Bryant (CHI – 2,322,249), while Zack Cozart (CIN – 2,260,205) maintains a narrow lead over Corey Seager (LAD – 2,151,923).

Free Youth Football Camps in local cities being hosted by current & former NFL players, coaches

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

350 CURRENT AND FORMER NFL PLAYERS AND COACHES HOST

NFL Foundation Awards $1 Million to Support Youth Football Camps

Camps Part of ‘Play Football’ Summer Activities

As part of summer camp season festivities, 350 current and former NFL players and coaches will host free, non-contact youth football camps for more than 80,000 children, it was announced today. The NFL Foundation, the NFL’s nonprofit organization representing all 32 clubs, has awarded $1 million in grants to support youth football camps. Kids can Play Football all summer through additional NFL Foundation-funded camps and events hosted by Clubs and NFL partners such as USA Football.  ​​

The Youth Football Camp Grant Program, in its 20th year, recognizes NFL players and coaches who give back to communities in their hometowns or club markets and offer young athletes the opportunity to play in a healthy and fun environment. Camps are hosted throughout the country and focus on teaching proper technique across varying skill levels and emphasize teamwork and sportsmanship.

NFL Foundation grant recipients hosting camps this summer include: Buffalo Bills linebacker LORENZO ALEXANDER; Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback BLAKE BORTLES; Green Bay Packers wide receiver RANDALL COBB; Carolina Panthers linebacker THOMAS DAVIS; Kansas City Chiefs safety ERIC BERRY; NFL Legend GREG JENNINGS; Denver Broncos linebacker SHANE RAY; Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver TORREY SMITH; and Pittsburgh Steelers head coach MIKE TOMLIN.

“The NFL is proud to support current and former NFL players and coaches as they give back to their communities and expand opportunities for children to play football and have fun,” said NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL. “This summer, thousands of children will attend these free camps and learn the fundamentals of football directly from members of the NFL family who are outstanding role models both on and off the field.”

“My parents taught me from a young age to think about others’ needs in addition to our own. That’s why holding youth camps is so important to me and why we do it each year,” said Kansas City Chiefs safety ERIC BERRY, who is hosting his third NFL Foundation-funded youth football camp. “By hosting these youth camps, I hope to take some of the burden away from these kids’ parents while offering them the opportunity to get out here and have some fun. I’m honored to have the ability to give back to the communities that have given me so much along the way.”

200 of the camp grant recipients are working with USA Football to host FUNdamentals Camps this summer, which introduce young athletes to football by teaching basic skills. All drills at FUNdamentals camps are based on USA Football’s Player Progression Development Model, ensuring participants learn in an age-appropriate manner.

“The team nature of the military and sports hold distinct similarities – both can foster exceptional character and inspire extraordinary achievement,” said Retired Army General Raymond Odierno, chairman of USA Football, who served as the 38th Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army from 2011-15. “Playing football afforded me these qualities and USA Football’s FUNdamentals camps, made possible through the NFL Foundation, deliver this to thousands of kids today. Our fun and forward-thinking programs open doors to fitness, friendships and life-enriching values that last a lifetime.”

First-time coaches at camps funded through the NFL Foundation must complete an online Coach Smart course with instruction on player health and safety fundamentals, including preventing, recognizing and responding to dehydration and overheating, concussion and sudden cardiac arrest.

The NFL has long supported players’ philanthropic endeavors and the NFL Foundation has awarded more than $7 million in grants to support free, non-contact youth football camps hosted by current and former players and coaches since 1998.
