Yankees All-Star Game Update

All of the five Yankees’ infielders have been voted into the top five at their respective position for the All-Star Game.  Derek Jeter is the only Yankee to hold a starting position, but he is also the leading vote-getter in the American League. 

The 2009 Midsummer Classic will be held at Busch Stadium, the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, on July 14.  Here is how the Yankees rank:

1st Base Votes
1.  Kevin Youkilis  (Bos) 414,693
3.  Mark Teixeira 295,798
2nd Base  
1.  Ian Kinsler  (Tex) 514,645
4.  Robinson Cano 257,695
