Today is the deadline to vote former Husker Alex Gordon into Major League Baseball’s All Star Game. At last count, he was in third behind Paul Konerko of the White Sox and Victor Martinez of Detroit, two major markets, but with a loyal fan base in Kansas City and backers of the Big Red, let’s see if we can get Gordon voted in.
In fact, the Royals and Colorado Rockies have joined forces to beat major market teams. They’ve teamed up to promote Gordon for the American League and Helton for the National League. So, perhaps fans on the western edge of the state who may be Rockies fans, can vote for both regional players.
Each fan can vote up to 25 times…I dropped in about a dozen votes for both players.
