We’ve been collecting thousands of votes over the past few days for the Westchester/Putnam fan-selected all-star team, and now it’s time to get the voting in Rockland underway.
I want to stress once again that the winners of these polls will not necessarily be named to The Journal News all-star teams, which I will select based on input from many coaches and baseball minds in the area. This is just an opportunity for the fans to get involved and voice their opinions on who they think is most deserving. I’ve seen some of the comments on the Westchester/Putnam post and I understand that this turns it into somewhat of a popularity contest, but all I can tell you is that this is simply an exercise to let you guys have your say. My all-star teams are pretty much picked at this point, so this won’t have much of an affect on that. Let’s not bash any kids unnecessarily and just try to have fun with it.
Same rules apply for Rockland as they do in Westchester/Putnam. There will be one catcher, four infielders, three outfielders and five pitchers voted in, plus two utility spots for the next two highest vote-getters. You can still vote for the Westchester/Putnam fan-selected all-star team by clicking here.
Have at it!
