Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz demonstrates his "victory dance" in a new CapriSun commercial to promote their Kids vs Pros Playground Throwdown Event.
Fortunately this is only a commercial, or else Big Papi would be starting up a bench clearing brawl with those moves.
In the CapriSun contest, kids between the ages of 6-17 can enter to get a chance to take...
David Ortiz traded lumber for metal during batting practice Sunday, and he put on quite the display.
Messing around with an aluminum bat on an off day in Tampa Bay, Ortiz put eight consecutive BP pitches into the Tropicana Field seats, according to The Associated Press. Big Papi won’t be able to use his new toy Monday night, but the classic, wooden version has suited him just fine...
Including the postseason David Ortiz has belted 445 home runs in his career. Many of them have been majestic shots that he watched and admired reminiscent of another left-handed slugger back in the day named Reggie Jackson.

This is a fun video shot by the Globe's Peter Abraham during batting practice on Sunday. David Ortiz starts hitting with an aluminum bat and just slams one after another into the stands. Reportedly, he did this eight times in a row. Note Tom Petty's "Free Falling" playing in the background. It couldn't be a more appropriate song in my opinion.
David Ortiz was the victim of every father’s nightmare when they are teaching their son how to play baseball. Getting smacked right in the nuts with an unexacting line drive.

This clip is strait out of America’s Funniest Home Videos. As you can see here, David Ortiz is pitching a little batting practice for his nephew.

The nephew swings for the fences and sends one straight for the nether region, sending the Red Sox’s $14 million star to the ground...

Before last night’s game, Big Papi was enjoying some quality time with his son. Ortiz was throwing his kid some soft toss, and let’s just say little Big Papi has some pop in his bat.
Check out this hysterical video of Big Papi’s kid hitting a line drive right into his groin.
Like Father like...
The Boston Red Sox are one of the wilder teams in baseball. After they beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in Game 4 of the ALDS to clinch a berth into the ALCS, you knew they would be partying hard. But nobody was prepared for the scene we saw inside the clubhouse. Reliever Koji Uehara […]
Looks like we might have another Big Papi coming up the ranks. See this video and GIF of a little Papi (David Ortiz's nephew), swinging a bat just like his uncle. Hilariousness ensues, as he nails Papi right where the sun don't shine. Should the Red Sox just sign him now? I think so.

The Red Sox just shut the front door on the Rays and moved on to the ALCS and I'm not sure my smile could get any bigger. Well, that's what I thought until I saw this.
David Ortiz doesn't just crush it out of the ballpark, he crushes it on the dance floor too. The man has MOVES. Watch Big Papi break it down in this new CapriSun commercial. Look at that BUTT...
