--Francisco Doesn’t Play Politics--
(June 14, 2019) – Professional baseball player Francisco Lindor announced today a campaign aimed to generate votes for starting All-Star shortstop in Cleveland for the 2019 election day race. Now in his fifth year starting as shortstop with the Indians, Lindor and New Balance have launched a grassroots campaign to yet again become the starting shortstop in Cleveland on July 9th
when baseball’s All-Stars come to his homefield. Clevelanders and fans can cast their vote for Lindor by visiting www.VoteForLindor.com
Lindor’s announcement came in a campaign video released on Twitter. “This country needs a starting shortstop like Francisco Lindor. Frankie doesn’t play politics. He plays shortstop,” said one Clevelander in the video. Lindor’s campaign video focuses on Cleveland’s need to elect a “Frankie Lindor” for shortstop. Known as a swing state for the 2019 election day race, Lindor’s campaign is aimed at the grassroots Cleveland sports fan. His switch-hitting ability just may appeal to both sides of the plate in Ohio. “An All-Star for all of us,” he proclaims.
Lindor’s campaign includes a robust media plan including local access TV & radio, bus wraps, digital billboards and more. Local organizations such as the RTA, Mitchell’s, Melt Bar & Grilled, CLE Clothing and Brewnuts have endorsed Lindor’s pro-hits agenda by boasting signage, flyers, stickers and posts on social media. Cleveland-based advertising agency Brokaw has been leading all grassroots efforts acting as Lindor’s campaign headquarters.
The primary round of All-Star voting is open now through June 21st
. The primary round elects three shortstops in each league to advance to the second phase of voting, The Election. Visit www.VoteForLindor.com
