David Ortiz Squaring Off Against Derek Jeter In ‘Face Of MLB’ Contest


David Ortiz needs some help from Red Sox Nation.

Ortiz is squaring off with New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter as part of MLB.com’s “Face of MLB” tournament. Jeter held a commanding lead as of Monday afternoon, but Red Sox fans have until 8 a.m. ET on Tuesday to vote Ortiz into the next round.

Ortiz recently was voted the “Face of the Red Sox” via a Twitter vote. Each Major League Baseball club is represented by one player, and Jeter is Ortiz’s first-round opponent. The winner of the Ortiz-Jeter matchup will face the winner of the Jose Bautista-Freddie Freeman matchup.

Fans can vote for Ortiz in his matchup with Jeter by using the hashtag #DavidOrtiz and the hashtag #FaceOfMLB. Both hashtags must be used in tweets to count as an official vote, and there is a 25-vote maximum per Twitter account. (In other words, hop on Twitter and vote 25 times for Ortiz.)
