Five Padres on ballot vie for first All-Star trip
SAN DIEGO -- Eight Padres are listed on the National League ballot for the All-Star Game in Kansas City in July.

Third baseman Chase Headley, first baseman Yonder Alonso, second baseman Orlando Hudson, catcher Nick Hundley, shortstop Jason Bartlett, as well as outfielders Cameron Maybin, Will Venable and Carlos Quentin are part of the NL ballot.

Online voting begins Friday and fans can cast their votes for starters up to 25 times at MLB.com and all 30 club sites -- online or via your mobile device -- using the 2012 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot until Thursday, June 28, at 8:59 p.m. PT.

The 2012 American League and NL All-Star teams will be unveiled on Sunday, July 1, on the 2012 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show, televised nationally on TBS. Baseball fans around the world will then be able to select the final player on each team via the 2012 All-Star Game Final Vote on MLB.com.

Of the eight Padres listed on the ballot, only Hudson, Bartlett and Quentin have previously appeared in an All-Star game.

Of the eight players, Headley is off to a fast start. After hitting four home runs all of last season, Headley already has four home runs in 13 games, two of which occurred in Wednesday's loss in Denver to the Rockies.
