PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - If Lorena Ramos has any influence, Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig will win the fan voting for a spot on the All-Star team.
The 38-year-old season ticket holder estimates she has texted 5,000 times on Puig's behalf to ensure he lands the last roster spot on the NL team for next week's game in New York.
Ramos was working her phone some more in between watching the Dodgers' road game at Arizona on Tuesday night from Barney's Beanery in Old Town Pasadena, along with other blue-and-white clad fans.
The viewing and voting party was the second of three hosted by the Dodgers around the Los Angeles area to give Puig a final push in the balloting. Former Dodgers star Steve Garvey, who made the 1974 All-Star Game as a write-in candidate, was on hand as honorary campaign manager.
