WEEKEND #VOTEREDS BASELINE ITEMS: NEW JERSEY ALLIANCE FORMED!
New Jersey natives Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds and Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have formed an All-Star alliance to encourage fans to cast votes for both superstars when filling out their 2015 All-Star Game ballots.
In addition to the already popular #VoteFrazier and #VoteTrout hashtags, fans on Twitter are also asked to help the New Jersey duo’s All-Star campaign by tweeting the hashtag #VoteJerseyBoys.
Both Frazier (Point Pleasant, NJ) and Trout (Vineland, NJ) are having phenomenal seasons and are long-time friends from the Garden State.
