Protesters at the All-Star Game at Target Field somehow gained access to the video board and placed a banner reading "Love water not oil" over part of it Tuesday.

KSTP's Tom Hauser, who was at the game, said it appeared on the board in right field in the third inning. Workers at Target Field were able to remove it after it was on display for 10 minutes.

It’s unclear how the protesters gained access to the area.

The "Love water not oil" slogan is associated with the Honor Earth campaign.

Target Field officials were not available for immediate comment.
