The Minnesota Twins parked a CASE 850M dozer in front of Target Field as part of its #VoteDozier campaign to place second baseman Brian Dozier on the American League All-Star Team.
Major League Baseball asks fans to pick one of five players for the last spot on each roster through the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote.
Dozier has been Minnesota's best hitter this season, batting .260/.332/.517 with 17 homers, 26 doubles, three triples, seven stolen bases and 42 RBIs in 82 games entering Tuesday. He wasn't selected for the All-Star Game last year at Target Field, but he participated in the Home Run Derby.
Dozier was quoted as saying via the Twins’ official website: “I think it's really nice and cool of the Twins to do all the advertising and go above and beyond with the bulldozer and stuff. You play for the fans and they pay the ticket to come to see you play, so for them to do what they do and get the fans involved is pretty cool.”
Fans can vote for Dozier via the Final Vote ballot on MLB.com through 4:00 PM EST on Friday, July 10.
