The Texas Rangers’ campaign to elect Elvis Andrus to the American League All-Star team got a boost from some familiar faces.

The World Famous Wheelie-ing Elvi Daredevil Mini-Motorcycle Riders taped a short video at Globe Life Park voicing their support Andrus.

Andrus is one of five AL candidates for the Final Vote, which is a fan-vote to choose the 32nd and final member of the All-Star team.
