Former CNN news anchor Larry King has thrown his hat into the mania surrounding the All-Star Game. Last night, King tweeted about Oakland A's third baseman Josh Donaldson being an All-Star Game snub (a sentiment we agreed with on Monday). How in the world is Josh Donaldson @BringerOfRain20 not on the AL All-Star team? That is a joke! — Larry King (@kingsthings) July 9, 2013 In another cool twist, Donaldson actually retweeted King's tweet about his lack of a trip to Flushing next week. However, before that tweet about Donaldson, King encouraged his followers to vote for Yasiel Puig in the Final Vote campaign. Attention followers please go to @Dodgers website & vote Puig for All-Star team - do it now -that's an order! Thanks! http://t.co/vawjv1eBVm — Larry King (@kingsthings) July 8, 2013 Puig is second in the NL's voting as of Tuesday morning to Freddie Freeman of the Braves. Actress Alyssa Milano (a huge baseball fan) also tweeted her support for Puig. The Final Vote will continue until 4 PM on Thursday, in which the winners in the American and National Leagues will be announced. If a team, be it the Dodgers, Blue Jays, Yankees, or any of the other teams, manages to get Justin Bieber involved in the online vote, consider the race over. [Big League Stew] [follow]
