Minnesota Twins second baseman and former Southern Miss star Brian Dozier is among five candidates who are part of a fan vote to decide the final spot on the American League All-Star Team.
On Wednesday, he received an endorsement from a man who is both a Minnesota and USM legend.
Brett Favre, who finished his NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings, recorded a brief video endorsing Dozier in the fan vote.
“I'm asking you to vote for my fellow Southern Miss alum, Brian Dozier, for this year's All-Star Game,” Favre said in the video.
The Twins have put together a determined campaign in recent weeks to get Dozier on the A.L. All-Star Team. He is currently batting .258 with 17 homers and 43 RBIs. He also has 26 doubles and 63 runs scored.
