Donald Trump just wrangled up a pair of Major League endorsements.

Former New York Yankees Paul O’Neil and Johnny Damon have both come forward to lend the real estate mogul their support in his campaign for the White House.

Damon — who took home World Series titles with New York in 2009 and 2004 with Boston — told the New York Daily News Wednesday he’s been “a Trump fan ever since I met him seven or eight years ago.”

“Everything he does, he does first-class — his hotels, his businesses, his golf courses,” he explained. “The issues all the other politicians failed to discuss, [Trump] is bringing us up to speed.”

Damon also agrees with Trump’s immigration platform.

“Everyone is calling him a racist. He just wants people to come into this country legally and fill out the proper paperwork. That’s how I’m viewing it.”

O’Neil — who claimed five World Series titles during his years with the Yankees and Reds — officially joined the Trump team on Tuesday night, when he appeared at a Trump rally in Florida to issue his formal endorsement.
