New York YankeesshortstopDidi Gregoriusis one of five candidates for the AL's Final Vote into the 2017 MLB All-Star Game in Miami.
As of Wednesday, Gregorius placed third in AL voting behind Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakasand Boston Red SoxshortstopXander Bogaerts. Needing a voting boost, Gregorius took to the streets of New York City to perform good deeds on Thursday ahead of the 4 p.m. ET deadline to vote.
Gregorius gave out free MetroCard swipes for subway riders, took photos for tourists at Rockefeller Center, made burrito bowls for hungry fans, handed out umbrellas, and led a group tour through the city. Will these #DidisDeeds earn him enough votes for a final spot?
Didi's hashtag use implies that he has teamed up with Colorado Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds(#BeLikeMark) to earn more votes.
The Yankees also campaigned hard for Gregorius on Thursday by tweeting his baby pictures.
The Final Vote winners in each league will be announced at 6 p.m. ET on MLB Network.
