"God decided that it wasn't my time to go, so obviously, there's something left for me to do," said Dauer, who played for the Orioles from 1976 to 1985 and won a championship in 1983 for Baltimore. "I don't know what that is. Maybe the All-Star Game is a start. I know a few things that I'd really like to do, but I'm just really, really thankful that I can not only be here on this Earth, but here at the All-Star Game. This is something that I've never done before. I'm thankful for A.J. [Hinch] for allowing me to come. I'm thankful for that."
