David Ortiz had one of those legendary moments in last night’s Red Sox-Tigers clash at Comerica Park.
Let’s just say David Ortiz is savoring each and every moment of his farewell season. The best part: no one will question the guy.
How can you blame him? The man is enjoying the conclusion of an iconic career.
In yesterday’s matchup with the Detroit Tigers, Big Papi handed out gum and took a selfie with a young fan while in the on-deck circle. Stepping up to the plate soon thereafter, he unloaded on his 29th homer of the year.
For Ortiz, it was just another walk in the park. For the fans, it was a moment they will never forget.
A game should not go by without the demonstration of true respect for the impact the guy has had on the game. Let alone the fact that he is the definition of an ageless wonder.
How about a .320 average, 29 homers, and 97 RBIs with over a month to play in your age 40 season? Remarkable.
