Contest Time : Predict The All-Star Game MVP!!!

The name of this contest says it all!!!

Taking a page out of Wax Heaven’s book, with Mario’s approval, I will be asking the readers to chose a player slated to play in the All-star game that they feel will win the game’s Most Valuable Player award.  It’s really just that simple.

The rules are easy.  Each reader gets to select one player on either the American League roster to National League roster.  Once a player has been selected they cannot be chosen again.  I will close the selections at 11:59 on Monday night so I can publish a final list of the readers participating in this contest and the player they’re pulling for prior to the start of the game. 

Sound like fun?  Then get going and pick your guy.  All you have to do is review these rosters and submit your name and your player’s name into the comments section of this post.  That’s it – I told you it would be easy!!!

And the winner of this contest will get their choice of any TWO of these autographed baseball cards by former major league All-stars!!!

Pick the All-Star MVP, win 2 All-Stars!!!

Pick the All-Star MVP, win 2 All-Stars!!!

Get going and Good Luck!!!
