Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz crushed a three-run homer in the third inning of Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, his 25th blast of the 2014 season.
Before beginning his trip around the bases, Ortiz looked at his dugout and gave an epic bat flip. It’s the kind of swagger only Big Papi could display after a huge home run.
Thanks, bat. Now take a break while I go for a jog. pic.twitter.com/85rIGmKNNA—

Normally, pitchers would complain about Ortiz’s bat flip and ensuing slow trot around the bases (and Chris Archer did). But if you want a different result, don’t throw a fastball down the middle to one of the best hitters of this generation.
