Voting for the 2017 Major League Baseball All-Star Game is officially available.

The game takes place on July 11, but you can start casting your votes now. According to MLB.com, you can vote up to five times every 24 hours (up to a total of 35 ballots).

You can select one player for each infield, catching and three players for the outfield position, per the league. For the American League, you can vote for one player at the designated hitter position. As always, there’s a write-in option as well for each position.

Festivities for the week include a FanFest at the Miami Beach Convention Center, All-Star Sunday, Sirius XM Futures Game, the All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game, and of course the annual Home Run Derby.

Voting ends June 29, at 11:59 PM eastern time and you can vote here in hopes of seeing your favorite player in the game that takes place at Miami Marlins Park. Fans can also access the ballot through MLB.com Ballpark and AtBat Apps.

It may seem entirely too early to be casting votes, but keeping the site up this long will certainly draw revenue.
