The 2013 All-Star Game Final Vote ballots came in Thursday afternoon and the end result did not change much from when voting started Sunday afternoon. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Steve Delabar and Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman each collected wire-to-wire victories in record-setting fashion.
There was a total of 79.2 million votes cast, blowing away the previous record of 68.6 in 2009. 10.2 million of the votes this year were cast through text messages as well. Freeman broke the record with 19.7 million votes being placed, breaking the previous record held by Shane Victorino of 15.6 in 2009. Delabar received 9.6 million votes to pace the American League.
