This is regarding the fan of the year voting. Something doesn’t make sense. I was monitoring the percentage of votes and reloading it every couple of hours. And then all of a sudden one individual jumped over 30 percentage points. I checked Twitter and he hasn’t had many votes that would cause the spike. Do you know who I can contact??

Aaron:

Contact Mike Teevan at 212-931-7879. He is a Vice President for communications at Major League Baseball.
