David Ortiz Demolishes Dugout Phone After Striking Out, Being Ejected in Seventh Inning Against Orioles (Video)

David Ortiz was certain he had earned a walk during Saturday night’s game against the Orioles, but home plate umpire Tim Timmons disagreed.

With a pitch high in the zone called for strike one, Ortiz soon found himself striking out swinging and not too happy with the man behind the plate. The slugger had some choice words for the umpire as he returned to the dugout, but the dugout phone actually took the brunt of the wrath of Big Papi.

Ortiz was ejected after arguing balls and strikes, but his night was not over quite yet. He returned to the dugout and demolished the phone with his bat and a couple of hard whacks before heading back out to finish his tirade while being held back by John Farrell.

Check out the outburst in the video below.
