MLB Final Vote: Aaron Hill Misses Out On National League All-Star Team

Aaron Hill was one of five players on the ballot to be named the 34th man on the National League's All-Star Team, and he was up against some tough competition. Hill has had a fine season in 2012 and shocked the baseball world after hitting for the cycle twice in the month of June, but it was tough to see him overcoming big names such as Chipper Jones, Bryce Harper and David Freese.

As voting concluded on Thursday, Hill was not voted in by the fans.

Freese was selected by the fans through a mixture of online, text and Twitter voting. Jones once led the competition earlier in the week, but he was selected by manager Tony La Russa as an injury replacement and was removed from the ballot. There were no official final voting tallies release, although Freese and Harper were Nos. 1 and 2 throughout the entire process.

Hill now has to rely on a player pulling out of the game due to injury if he hopes to play in the 2012 Mid-Summer Classic.
