Papi
David Ortiz loves giving back to the community. While Big Papi is best known for his moon shots that sail into the Fenway Park stands, Ortiz is also a prominent humanitarian. For the fifth time, he organized the David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic held on Saturday in his native Dominican Republic. In the previous four editions of the tournament, Ortiz has raised $750,000 for the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, which provides critical pediatric healthcare to children in New England and the Dominican. This year, Ortiz was joined by plenty of former teammates, including Pedro Martinez, Kevin Millar and Johnny Damon, along with former manager Terry Francona. Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and Bruins winger Shawn Thornton also made the trip to the sunny weather and pristine playing conditions of Cap Cana. Click here for a photo gallery of the tournament >>
