Royals fans are doing their best to get their favorite players into this year’s All-Star Game.

You may have seen that Eric Hosmer has moved into the lead among first baseman in the American League, while catcher Salvador Perez still is the top vote-getter in the American League.

Perez had a fun exchange with reporters on Tuesday as he asked fans to continue to vote.

However, Kansas State Trooper Ben Gardner wants to make one thing clear to Royals fans who might consider casting a ballot for third baseman Mike Moustakas.

He wrote on Twitter: “Please DON’T #VoteMoose and drive ! Please pull to safe location and THEN #VoteMoose #VoteMoose #VoteMoose #VoteMoose #VoteMoose #VoteMoose”

That seems like a no-brainer, right? Can’t argue with Trooper Ben on that one.
