Buffalo (Bisons.com) Triple-A® Baseball, MLB Advanced Media, LP (MLBAM) and the Buffalo Bisons are excited to announce that fans across the country will once again have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite players to be selected to the Triple-A All-Star Game.



The 25th annual contest will be held at Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo, N.Y., home of the Buffalo Bisons, on July 11 at 7:00 p.m. EDT and will match outstanding players from the International League and the Pacific Coast League.
