Additionally, fans who submit a ballot and select the Cardinals as their “favorite team” will receive an exclusive discount ticket offer of $25 Field Box and $15 Loge seats for either the Friday, July 14, or Saturday, July 15, games vs. the Washington Nationals (while supplies last).

The 2023 MLB All-Star Ballot once again features two phases of fan voting to determine the All-Star starters. During the initial voting period, which concludes at 11:00 AM CT on Thursday, June 22, fans can submit up to five ballots per 24-hour period on MLB platforms. Later that day, the top two vote-getters at each position (and the top six outfielders) in each League will be revealed on MLB Network at 5:00 PM CT, and they will advance to the second phase of voting to determine who makes the All-Star teams and starts for each League. In addition, the leading vote-getter in each league during the first phase of voting will once again receive an automatic starting assignment at the All-Star Game and bypass the second phase of voting. If an outfielder is a league’s leading vote-getter, Phase Two voting at the position will still take place to determine the remaining two starters among the next four outfield finalists.

Phase Two will begin at 11:00 AM CT on Monday, June 26, with fans voting among the finalists at each position during a four-day window that concludes at 11:00 AM CT on Thursday, June 29.  Later that night, the winners will be announced on ESPN at 6:00 PM CT.  During this second phase of voting, in which fans can vote once per 24-hour period on MLB platforms, vote totals will reset (i.e., vote totals from Phase 1 do not carry over) and the winner at each position (including three outfielders per League) will be named a starting position player for the 2023 Midsummer Classic.

The pitchers and reserves for both squads – totaling 23 for each side – will be determined through a combination of “Player Ballot” choices and selections made by the Commissioner’s Office.  The balance of the All-Star rosters will be announced on Sunday, July 2, at 4:30 pm CT on ESPN.
