Back on April 20, while addressing the crowd at Fenway Park's first home game after the Boston Marathon Bombing, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz delivered a memorable quote — emphasized with the now-famous words, "this is our f------ city!" And to help raise money for the One Fund Boston charity, Big Papi is using those same words to raise money for the victims of the attack by putting them on a baseball bat. Ortiz's quick pregame speech in the midst of a Boston tribute that came in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing made headlines when he used the F-word. And now, anyone can buy a bat with that phrase emblazoned on the inside of the barrel available at big papi.com. If you prefer "Nobody's going to dictate our freedom" to the "this is our f------ city" quote, you have an option to pick the former. But it sounds like the cool thing will be choosing the R-rated version. The Red Sox designated hitter announced that in conjunction with Marucci Sports he'll be selling customized bats, and 100 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to the One Fund Boston and other sources of victim support.
