In conjunction with MLB's All-Star voting, People magazine is holding an "All-Stars Among Us" contest in which fans vote for one of three community-oriented individuals representing each team. The finalists for each team will attend and be recognized at this year's All-Star Game.

After you do that, go and vote for Gomez here!
