Fans can vote exclusively online until July 5

June 1st, 2018

BALTIMORE -- Manny Machado is having a career year, emerging as one of the top offensive players in the American League in his first full season as the Orioles' shortstop. And you can help the superstar reach the 2018 All-Star Game, down the road at Nationals Park.

VOTE: 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Ballot

All-Star balloting officially opened on Friday, and Machado -- in his final year before free agency -- should be high on plenty of lists. The 25-year-old leads the team with 17 homers and 46 RBIs after homering in his first at-bat in Friday night's game and ranks among the top 10 in numerous AL categories. Machado posted a .392 on-base percentage through the season's first two months and has 72 hits -- 15 of which are doubles -- to go with 31 runs scored on an Orioles team that has struggled offensively all season.

Fans may cast votes for starters at and all 30 club sites -- on computers, tablets and smartphones -- exclusively online using the 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Ballot until Thursday, July 5, at 11:59 p.m. ET. On smartphones and tablets, fans can also access the ballot via the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark mobile apps. Each fan can vote up to five times in any 24-hour period, for a maximum of 35 ballots cast.

Following the announcement of this year's All-Star starters, reserves and pitchers, fans should return to and cast their 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Final Vote for the final player on each league's roster. Then on Tuesday, July 17, while watching the 2018 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard live on FOX, fans may visit to submit their choices for the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player Award presented by Chevrolet with the 2018 MLB All-Star Game MVP Vote.
