As proud sponsor of Major League Baseball and Buster Posey, we couldn’t be more excited for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game presented by T-Mobile® next Tuesday.
And this year, with the all-digital 2015 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot, it’s been a record-breaking race to Cincinnati.
The first entirely online ballot, available at MLB.com on computers and mobile devices, crushed previous records with a total of 620 million votes cast to date.
Of course #ASGWorthy players weren’t the only ones hoping to score a trip to Cincy for the big game. With each vote cast, Esurance gave fans the chance to win their own once-in-a-lifetime All-Star experience as an Esurance #ASGWorthyFan.
The Esurance #ASGWorthyFan Sweepstakes
Fans who voted for their favorite All-Star Game hopefuls using the all-digital ballot were entered to win an awesome trip to Cincinnati. We selected 1 winner from each major league market (plus 1 Wild Card) to enjoy MLB All-Star Week® in style.
The Esurance All-Star Weekend Exclusive
For 4 days, 31 lucky winners and their guests will be treated to all that All-Star Week has to offer. On their first morning in Cincy, they’ll meet hall-of-famers Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan before getting private access to the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest.
Not only will they have access to the SiriusXM® MLB All-Star Futures Game, the All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game®, and the Gillette Home Run Derby presented by Head & Shoulders — they’ll also watch the players warm up and take batting practice before the first pitch.
Of course the main event comes Tuesday with the 2015 MLB All-Star Game presented by T-Mobile. But before heading to Great American Ball Park, the winners will hit up an exclusive pre-party thrown by MLB and the Cincinnati Reds. Our fans will enjoy drinks, appetizers, and a private show by The Avett Brothers before taking their seats to watch the best in the big leagues face off.
Throughout the entire jam-packed weekend, each winner will be video-equipped to make sure they capture every moment of their All-Star fun. It promises to be a truly spectacular week, and baseball fans everywhere can follow #ASGWorthyFan to get an insider look at the action.
#InstantAllStar at T-Mobile All-Star FanFest
For those who didn’t score a coveted spot on the #ASGWorthyFan roster, there’s still plenty to look forward to during All-Star Week including T-Mobile All-Star FanFest.
From Friday until Tuesday, the Duke Energy Convention Center will be transformed into the world’s largest baseball expo, with memorabilia, virtual batting cages, and the larger-than-life Esurance #InstantAllStar experience.
To become an #InstantAllStar, fans can reenact a game-saving catch at the outfield wall. We’ll capture these All-Star moves with a 180-degree photo array and turn them into a 3D-animated GIF. Fans who share their #InstantAllStar animation on social will score free tech swag.
We’ll be posting our favorite moves on social with #InstantAllStar, so don’t miss it. And be sure and check back next week when we’ll share a full photo recap of our time in Cincy!
