Giants catcher Buster Posey, the 2012 National League Most Valuable Player, leads all NL vote getters in the first balloting totals for the 84th All-Star Game.

Major League Baseball announced the leaders to start the July 16 game at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

Posey has 1,275,956 votes as he seeks his second starting nod after becoming the first Giants catcher to earn a fan-elected start last season. Atlanta Braves' outfielder Justin Upton and Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals are second and third in the voting, respectively.

Posey's teammate, Pablo Sandoval leads the New York Mets David Wright, a six-time All-Star, of the hometown New York Mets.

Plenty of other Giants are in the running, too. First baseman Brandon Belt, second baseman Marco Scutaro and shortstop Brandon Crawford are all second in voting at their respective positions.
