New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius went around the Big Apple doing good deeds in a campaign for All-Star votes.

On Thursday, the 27-year-old swiped New Yorkers onto the subway, handed out umbrellas, took pictures, made a burrito bowl and hopped on a tour, all with the Midsummer Classic in mind.

As part of the MLB’s Final Vote system, any tweet that featured #SirDidi4Sure counted as a vote. The Yankees team account got in on the action, too, but Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas beat out Gregorius and others.

According to James Miller of the New York Daily News, the Final Vote “allows fans to cast ballots online at or team websites, text-message entry and—on the final day of voting—social media voting via Twitter, to elect one player from each league to the season’s annual All-Star game.”

If he got in, Sir Didi would’ve joined Bombers teammates Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Dellin Betances, Luis Severino and Starlin Castro.
