FORT MYERS, Fla. — David Ortiz cleared the fence several times during batting practice at Boston Red Sox spring training on Sunday. But perhaps Big Papi’s most interesting moment came after the club wrapped up its day of workouts.
Ortiz shared some laughs and talked baseball with popular Japanese comedian Hironari Yamazaki — who was decked out in a full baseball uniform — before heading back into the Red Sox’s clubhouse. Ortiz then gave Yamazaki the bat and batting gloves he used during Sunday’s workouts.
Yamazaki, who apparently is friends with Manny Ramirez, even got to try on Ortiz’s gigantic gold chain before eventually miming a batting stance upon receiving Papi’s lumber.
