Voting for the All-Star Game began on Sunday, and well, fans around the nation haven’t forgotten last year.

Royals fans voted early and often and had eight players leading the vote at one point, although four ended up starting.

Still, some people are worried about a repeat of the early voting when Royals fans showed their prowess at online voting.

Young right-hander has a 2.35 ERA in four starts. He's racked up 21 strikeouts in 23 innings.
