In an effort to better engage its fans, Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association have plans to amend the voting process for the All-Star Game, according to ESPN, by creating an 'Election Day,' a single-day vote much like those cast every November for office.
The report says All-Star voting would begin as usual, but when it closes, the top-three vote-getters at each position would be placed on a new single-day ballot to determine the starters for each league.
The institution of an Election Day is part of the CBA discussions between MLB and MLBPA. Another proposal would increase the Home Run Derby prize money in order to incentivize participation for the league's bigger stars.
As part of the changes to the CBA, according to the report, rosters would expand to 26 players with a 13-pitcher limit, and a three-batter minimum rule would be instituted for the 2020 season.
