Geddy Lee throws out the ceremonial first pitch at Blue Jays home openerMajor League Baseball in partnership with Esurance has opened up voting in the first ever MLB Awards. One of the voting categories is Best Celebrity Fan and Geddy Lee along with 11 other celebs is in the running:

As a longtime Blue Jays fan who has taken in many games at Rogers Centre across the years, Rush frontman Geddy Lee has relished the chance to view postseason baseball in Toronto for the first time since 1993. The Toronto native has been frequently spotted in his usual seat behind home plate - with his customary scorebook, of
course - this October.

To vote for Geddy, just go to mlb.com/awards and click on the Best Celebrity Fan category on the left. Vote as many times as you like up until the polls close on Friday, November 13th. Last week Geddy made a guest appearance via phone on Dan Patrick's syndicated radio and television sports talk show. He spoke about attending the Toronto Blue Jays' crazy win over the Texas Rangers Wednesday night, throwing out the first pitch at opening day 2 years ago, singing the Canadian National Anthem at the 1993 all-star game, how being a lead singer compares to being a baseball pitcher, his friendship with Randy Johnson and more. You can watch/listen to the entire interview below or on YouTube.
