Just a few years removed from leading Arkansas to the College World Series, Andrew Benintendi could be making the AL-All Star team, and could use some help. Benny is one of the five finalists for fans to vote on, and the Red Sox are going all out in their campaign to get him in.
If Benintendi wins the vote, he would be the sixth former Razorback to play in the MLB All-Star game, joining Randy Jackson, Dallas Keuchel, Cliff Lee, Tom Pagnozzi, and Johnny Ray as the others to do so. This year Benny overcame a slow start to the year but has upped his batting average to .296 on the year with 15 HRs, 55 RBIs, and 16 SBs (while only being caught stealing once). He’s been a mainstay in the outfield for one of the best teams in baseball and and thriving. Get the man in the All-Star Game.
You can vote online here, or by going on twitter and using #VoteBenny. Retweets count and voting ends tomorrow, so go out there and get him in.
