David Ortiz 1st by far in All-Star voting

Fan voting for the All-Star Game ends Thursday at 11:59 p.m. It seems safe to say that the Red Sox’ David Ortiz will be the designated hitter for the American League.

Ortiz has received 4,398,197 votes and is well ahead of Lance Berkman, who has 2,004,388. It would be the ninth All-Star selection for Ortiz and seventh time voted in as a starter.
