4/25 Vote for LaHair
Bryan LaHair has been a Triple-A All-Star and a Texas League All-Star, but this year, he’s on the big league All-Star ballot, included among National League first basemen.
“It’s cool to see those things,” said the Cubs first baseman, who hit his fourth homer on Wednesday in a 5-1 loss to the Cardinals. “It’s just another new experience for me. Every time a new experience comes around, it’s always fun to see — my family was excited to see that.”
Did he pick up a ballot as a souvenir?
“No, but I may if it comes across,” LaHair said. “It’s not something I play for. I play to help the team win and if my numbers and the votes come my way, that’s a plus.”
Maybe he can get his friends to vote online for him on MLB.com and Cubs.com.
“I’m sure there’s a bunch of people back in my hometown or maybe in Chicago,” he said, hoping the folks in his hometown of Worcester, Mass., come through. “We’ll see.”
