Justin Morneau wants to go home again.

Well, back to his second home.

The New Westminster, B.C., first baseman is one of five National Leaguers in the Final Man vote on social media for the all-star game.

Morneau was a member of the Minnesota Twins organization from June 18, 1999 until Aug. 30 last year when he was dealt to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The slugger joined the Colorado Rockies as a free agent in the off-season.

If Morneau wins the fan vote, he will return to Target Field in Minneapolis for the 85th all-star game on July 15.
