Camping World, new title sponsor of the 2018 MLB All-Star ballot & MLB All-Star Final Vote, gives fans the chance to win a Freedom Elite Motorhome

 

Major League Baseball will mark the official start of All-Star Balloting on Friday, June 1st at 12:00 p.m. ET for the 2018 MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard, which will be held on Tuesday, July 17th at Nationals Park, the home of the Washington Nationals. The 89th Midsummer Classic, hosted by the Nationals for the first time since the franchise moved to Washington, D.C., will mark the fifth All-Star Game to be played in the nation’s capital.

For the fourth consecutive season, MLB’s All-Star Balloting Program will be conducted exclusively online and via mobile devices at MLB.com, all 30 Club web sites and the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark mobile apps. Beginning on Friday, June 1st, fans around the world can cast their votes for starters a total of 35 times with the 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Ballot, including a maximum of five valid ballots cast in any 24-hour period. Additionally, when fans vote they have a chance to win a 2019 Freedom Elite Motorhome (right), valued at over $85,000.

During the voting period, the 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Ballot will be available in English, Spanish and Japanese, and will offer audio CAPTCHA functionality for visually impaired fans. Banco BHD León will once again sponsor online All-Star balloting in the Dominican Republic, making Spanish-language ballots available to fans in the Dominican Republic via LasMayores.com, the official Spanish-language web site of Major League Baseball.

Details regarding the unveiling of the 2018 American League and National League All-Star Teams will be available in the coming weeks. The AL All-Star Team will have nine elected starters via the fan balloting program, while the NL All-Star Team will have eight fan-elected starters. The pitchers and reserves for both squads — totaling 23 for the NL and 22 for the AL — will be determined through a combination of “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by the Commissioner’s Office. The AL squad will be managed by A.J. Hinch of the defending World Series Champion Houston Astros, while the NL team will be led by Dave Roberts of the defending NL Champion Los Angeles Dodgers.

Following the announcement of the American League and National League All-Star rosters, fans will begin voting to select the final player for each League’s 32-man roster via the 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Final Vote. Fans will cast their votes from a list of five players from each League over the balloting period. Now in its 17th season with over 760 million votes cast, fans again will be able to make their Final Vote selections on MLB.com, the Club sites and on their mobile devices.

This year’s final phase of All-Star Game voting again will have fans participating in the official voting for the Ted Williams All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Award presented by Chevrolet. During the Midsummer Classic, fans can vote exclusively at MLB.com and the 30 Club sites — online or via their mobile devices — with the 2018 All-Star Game MLB.com MVP Vote, and their collective voice will represent 20 percent of the official vote determining this year’s recipient of the Arch Ward Trophy.
