To decide who will be on the cover of the MLB 13: The Show, Sony has launched an online cover vote that allows fans to choose which Major League Baseball superstar will be showcased on the cover of the video game's case. Among the seven candidates is New York Yankees starter CC Sabathia, who was in second place in the voting as of Friday morning.

Joining Sabathia in the cover race is Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals, Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants, Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, and Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers. 

As of Friday morning, McCutchen was leading in votes, being trailed closely by Sabathia, who is the only pitcher on the list of candidates. 

To place your vote, visit the MLB13 Cover Showdown page to choose your candidate. Once you choose your candidate, you can vote via your Facebook or Twitter account by clicking on the Facebook or Twitter icon on that player's page. You can also vote by tweeting or retweeting your choice's MLB13 Cover Showdown hashtag. Sabathia's hashtag is "#MLB13CC."

Earlier this week, Sabathia was named one of the recipients of the 33rd annual Thurman Munson award for his excellent on-field play and his charitable contributions off the field through the PitCCh In Foundation. 

The Cover Showdown voting will end on January 11th at 8:00 PM EST. For more information, visit the MLB13 Cover Showdown info page
