Ortiz said he went to Jerry Remy‘s restaurant after the game and kept seeing the replay of the incident. He joked that people began to compare him to Mike Tyson.
The Red Sox designated hitter also joked that Marco Scutaro, the first player to jump in during the fight, looked like Kevin Gregg‘s backpack. Scutaro is listed at 5-foot-10, whereas Gregg, standing at 6-foot-6, made even Ortiz look small.
Ortiz said that a team doesn’t necessarily need a fight, but that it happens.
