The Boston Red Sox DH crushed a 3-run home run in the top of the third inning of Sunday’s game with the Tampa Bay Rays, and he pimped it hard core.
Ortiz took the ball deep, gave a fantastic bat flip, a nod of approval for his job well done, and then he began walking towards first base. This angle captures it even better:
Ortiz already takes forever to circle the bases on his home run trots, but this seemed extreme even by his standards. Rays fan Cork Gaines says Ortiz took 10 seconds just to get to first. This GIF seems to confirm that stat:
The whole trot probably took him about 30 seconds. I think he did it just to tick off David Price.
