Dozier had a pretty great year on the offensive side as well, hitting .271 with a team-leading 34 HR and 93 RBI and scoring 106 runs in helping lead the Twins to the postseason for the first time since 2010.
But baseball is not Dozier’s priority.
“On my bio for twitter it says I’m a Christian playing baseball for the Minnesota Twins on the side,” Dozier told CBN in 2014. “I do have an amazing job that’s a dream come true for me. But at the same time, that’s not what I am. That’s not who I am. My real job is to be a Christian, be the guy that God wants me to be. That’s my main focus. And I pray every day before I play to see Christ living in me today.”
Dozier spoke in 2016 at the Twins Faith Night and said his purpose on this earth is not baseball or anything he accomplishes on the field, instead, it’s to glorify God each day.
“I have a purpose in life,” Dozier said. “I know that every time I step on that field, its not about wins or losses or home runs or championships. I know that my purpose in life is to glorify my Father in heaven.”
1 Corinthians 10:31 – So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
“I’ll take somebody being moved by my performance and seeing Christ living in me than a 5 for 5 day every day of the week I can promise you that.”
