Major League Baseball announced its 2018 All Star selections on Sunday, releasing rosters for both the American and National Leagues, but one spot on each squad will be filled by a fan vote and former Arkansas and current Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi is on the ballot.

The MLB picked five players from the AL and NL, and one will be selected to compete in the 2018 MLB All Star Game. If Benintendi is chosen to represent the American League, it’ll be his first ever All Star Game appearance. Razorback fans can '#VoteBenny' in the Camping World All Star Final Vote 2018 by logging on to the MLB website. Voting ends at 3:00 pm (CT) on Wednesday, July 11.

In his third season with the Red Sox, Benintendi is hitting .293 with 14 home runs, 55 RBIs and 16 stolen bases in 334 at bats. The Sox drafted Benintendi with the 7th overall pick in the first round of the 2015 MLB Draft, making him the second-highest Diamond Hog selection in school history. As a rookie, the 5-10 slugger finished with a .295 batting average, 2 homers and 14 RBIs in only 34 games of action. Still considered a rookie in 2017, Benintendi participated in nearly the entire season (played 151 games), compiling a .271 average with 20 homers, 90 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. If not for the emergence of the New York Yankee’s Aaron Judge, Benintendi would’ve likely been named the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year.

As a member of Madeira High School in Cincinnati (OH.), Benintendi starred on the diamond as well as on the basketball court, scoring 25.5 points per game as a senior. Named the 2013 ACBA/Rawlings National High School Player of the Year as well as a first team All-American in baseball, he decided to take his talents to Fayetteville (Ark.) to play for Dave Van Horn.

Playing in 61 games as a freshman, Benintendi hit .276 with 27 RBIs and 17 stolen bases, earning All-SEC Freshman Team honors. ‘Benny Baseball’ broke out as a sophomore in 2015, completing the greatest season in Razorback baseball history. He led the SEC with a .376 batting average and sat atop the entire country with 20 long bombs. Benintendi also led the conference in slugging percentage (.717), on-base percentage (.488) and walks (50).

Leading the Hogs to a College World Series appearance in Omaha, Benintendi received four national player of the year awards - Golden Spikes Award, Dick Howser Trophy, Baseball American National POY and Collegiate Baseball POY. Along with those accolades, he was a consensus first team All-American, the SEC Player of the Year and the conference Male Athlete of the Year.

Benintendi and the Red Sox currently sit in first place in the AL East at 62-29, two games ahead of the rival Yankees. The Red Sox start a three-game home series with the Texas Rangers today, Monday, July 9 at 6:10 pm (CT). Fox will televise the 2018 MLB All Star Game at 6:30 pm (CT) on Tuesday night, July 17.
