Today, the first voting results standings were released for the American League roster for the 2010 MLB All-Star Game in Anaheim, CA. The standings showed Ken Griffey Jr. in third place among designated hitters for the American League, 14 players are listed as DH on the AL ballot and others received write-in votes. This position in the standings for Griffey is not ideal, but impressive none the less! Due to his lack of productivity at the plate and having to have dealt with some media issues (the "Sleepgate" fiasco), one would have to be impressed with Junior's current standings in the ASG voting.
Griffey got some love in MLB.com's video "Early AL All-Star voting results"! The Seattle Mariners are also excited that Junior is among top vote-getters at DH for the American League.
Keep up the voting, 25 times per email address online or paper ballots at MLB stadiums, and spread the word on the "Vote for Junior" campaign! Ken Griffey Jr. is among the greatest to ever play the game and deserves this one last all-star memory. Help make it happen by voting for Ken Griffey Jr. for American League DH in the 2010 MLB All-Star Game. Please feel free to read all previous and future post on this website, they will provide you with some insight on this campaign and how great Griffey really was and is!
