You probably remember when Self lined a home run off Olympian Jennie Finch in the All-Star Celebrity softball game.

The Royals and Dodgers teamed up on social media to get fans from both of their teams to vote for both players using special hashtags on social media. Any tweet that said #VoteMoose counted toward the final total. After reviving his career over three strong seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Turner, 32, signed a four-year, $64 million deal with the club in December.

Moustakas deserved all the help. This season, Moustakas is hitting.275/.309/.570 with 25 home runs, 54 runs scored, and 44 runs in 320 PA.

All-Star Week kicks off on Monday, July 10 with a highly anticipated Home Run Derby at 8:00 PM ET on ESPN.

So, fans did a great job with the NL pick, but how about Moustakas in the AL? It's very annoying to me that other fan bases tweet about how Royals fans are the worst when they're not doing anything other than what the system allows.

The results of the Final Vote are in, and a pair of third baseman earned a trip to Miami for the MLB All-Star Game, to be played next Tuesday at Marlins Park.

The room was known throughout the week as "Justin Turner All-Star Game Voting Headquarters", and featured over 20 Pantone 294 members voting in shifts on computers around the clock until voting ended at 1:00PM PST on Thursday afternoon.
