Cards Lose The Primary

The polls closed earlier this afternoon and the election results for the St. Louis Cardinals are not good news. The team does not have a player who has received enough votes to advance in the voting for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game.

Under MLB’s revised voting this year, “The Primary” allowed for the top three vote-getters at each position and the top nine outfielders to advance to “The Starters Election”.

All 30 MLB teams will be represented at the game on July 9th, so the Cardinals will now have to rely on the player’s vote or Commissioner selections to have their representative chosen for the National League squad.
