Fans Send Blue Jays’ Michael Saunders to all-star Game
Canada stood firmly behind its captain.
The Blue Jays’ #VoteCaptainCanada campaign worked to perfection, sending left fielder Michael Saunders to the all-star game.
Saunders garnered more than 17 million votes in Major League Baseball’s online and social media balloting for the final spot on the American League team roster for the game in San Diego on Tuesday.
His total topped the tallies for Houston Astros OF George Springer, Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia, Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler, and Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria in the voting.
