Obviously Phillies fans turned out for the hometown guy, but didn't bother much with Victor Martinez. This is Victorino's second all star game, with other being when he won this same vote in 2009. He beat out Dodgers' Andre Ethier, the Rockies' Todd Helton, the Nationals' Michael Morse and the Diamondbacks' Ian Kennedy this year.

Shane had a little help from a certain WYSP listener who won a contest by voting for him 10,189 times in a half and hour.
