Up first is All-Star Ballot nominations, so let’s break down the process for how to nominate a player to be placed on the All-Star ballot.
First, some details on the All-Star teams
There will be two All-Star games, both taking place on October 5.
All-Star Game 1: Starter Showcase (all players eligible)
All-Star Game 2: Special Underdog Showcase (Underdogs and Specials only)
Each game will have 10 players, so there will be 20 All-Stars participating in the games but stay tuned for an additional surprise from Commissioner J.
How to nominate a player to be on the All-Star Ballot
Every VBA GM is allowed TWO nominations. They can be from your own team, or if you’d like to use your nominations for someone else’s player(s), you are free to do so.
At least ONE of your nominations must be an Underdog or Special player.
To make your ballot nominations, you must TWEET #VBAAllStar with the images of your two nominations AND their names (players must be named to be eligible for All-Star). We recommend you also include the player link as well just to be safe. These can be separate tweets or you may combine both of your nominations into one tweet.

Ballot Nominations are open from today until 6pm PST on Wednesday, September 21.
Voting will not begin until the following day, Thursday, September 22, time TBA — we will have a separate blog post that will detail the voting and selection process to ensure a fun and fair opportunity for all!
Each GM of a selected All-Star player will receive the official commemorative season0 merch* — a premium, embroidered crewneck sweatshirt just in time for Fall!
*sizes limited, maximum of 1 per GM, must ship to North America or will receive equal value digital prize
We’ll have other surprises and opportunities for additional prizes throughout the festivities. That’s it for now — be sure to get those nominations in ASAP!
