The Colorado Rockies will host the 2021 Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Coors Field on July 13. While the game itself may be more than a month away, the first step to see which players will represent the American and National Leagues has already been taken.
Here is how Colorado Rockies fans can vote for the 2021 MLB All-Star Game.
On Thursday, MLB and Google launched the first phase of voting for the 2021 Midsummer Classic. In that phase, fans from around the world can vote for their favorite MLB players exclusively online and via mobile devices at MLB.com, the MLB App, through individual team websites, and on Google Search (in the United States and Canada only). The voting period for this phase of the balloting will end at 2 p.m. (Mountain time) on Thursday, June 24. That’s a two-week window for voting in Phase 1 of the All-Star Game balloting.
On Sunday, June 27, at 10 a.m. (Mountain time), the 2021 Google MLB All-Star Ballot Finalists Show will be broadcast on MLB Network and reveal the top three vote-getters in the AL and NL for each position. Those three players will move on to the second phase of voting, which will determine who fans select to start in Denver.
"Here is an important thing to know about voting. According to a press release about the voting procedures, “During the initial voting period, fans can submit up to five ballots per 24-hour period on MLB platforms, and can vote for every position, or up to 17 unique players per day on Google.”"

So how do you make your vote count for Ryan McMahon (here are just some of the reasons why he should be the NL’s starting second baseman, in our opinion), Trevor Story, or any other Rockies position player who you think is an All-Star in 2021? You can click here to cast your ballot and, remember, you can vote up to five times each day for your favorite player.
And yes, these early votes are important. If McMahon, Story, or any other player doesn’t make it to the round of three at this position for the second phase of voting, there is no way he can start in the All-Star Game. It’s that simple.
