Within an hour, the hashtag #VoteMoose was trending nationally. Not in the Kansas City, but across the country.
Fans using that hashtag on Twitter from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday were casting a vote for Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas in the Final Vote competition to determine the last roster spot for the American League team in the All-Star Game.
