Who Bat Flips After Getting A Walk? David Ortiz Does (Gif)

This is obviously an old photo just because of the other two players photographed but you get the point of David Ortiz’s bat flips.  Big Papi is a lovable guy and when he gets a walk, he flips his bat in the most lovable of ways. Such poise. David Ortiz bat flips after a walk dot gif. — Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) August 18, 2014 Like a boss. [NIS] The...

Papi Gone Wild! Ortiz Powers Sox Over 'Stros

(Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)David Ortiz had one of those games last night.

My Second Favorite Expletive-Fueled David Ortiz Speech

On the all-time list of great orations, you’ve got your Gettysburg Address, your “ask not what your country can do for you” and probably that thing Winston Churchill said about being resilient in the face of enemy bombings.

WATCH: David Ortiz chasing down a flyball is HILARIOUS

Jason Whitney   Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is one of the greatest players of his era, but there is a reason why he is just a designated hitter. Big Papi just isn’t very light on his feet and you’ll never confuse him for being quick and nimble. However, that still doesn’t mean we can’t have a laugh at Papi’s expense while watching him try to play the field. Which...
