(June 3, 2019, York, Pa.) — The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs and the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB) announced today that voting for the 2019 ALPB All-Star Game is now open.

Voting will remain open until June 30, and fans may vote repeatedly to send their favorite players to York. The 2019 All-Star rosters will be determined by a combination of fan votes and the votes of team officials.The ALPB mid-summer classic returns to PeoplesBank Park on Wednesday, July 10.
The same event in 2011 drew the ballpark’s highest attendance, so Revolution officials encouraged fans to not only vote early and often but also to buy tickets for the 2019 All-Star Game in advance.“All-star games are a way of players showing off their talents to national fans on a stage with all their peers!
Any time one is chosen to an All-Star team that individual should feel special,” said Blue Crabs manager Stan Cliburn. “Between the caliber of play we know we’ll see in this year’s game and the exciting entertainment happening before, during, and after the event, we fully expect the limited seats remaining for the All-Star Game to go very quickly, so people interested in attending should get their tickets now,” added the ALPB 2019 All-Star Game host, York Revolution’s General Manager John Gibson.
The Revolution have previously announced the day will feature a wide variety of family-friendly activities in the Judgement Free Fun Zone presented by Planet Fitness on the Brooks Robinson Plaza and the pre-game home run derby. The fan-favorite ZOOperstars! will make their only appearance at PeoplesBank Park this year during the All-Star Game, and at the game’s conclusion the Star-Blazing Spectacular presented by AAA Southern Pennsylvania – the largest fireworks display in ballpark history – will launch from center field.For more information on this year’s All-Star Game, visit www.AllStarGameYork.com.
