2,467

David Ortiz’s farewell season couldn’t have started much better at the plate.

The Boston Red Sox designated hitter has hit three home runs in the first seven games of his final Major League Baseball season. To put that into perspective, the last player 40 or older to hit three homers over such a stretch was Hank Aaron in 1974.

Hear NESN’s Tom Caron, Steve Lyons and Dennis Eckersley break down Ortiz’s hot start in the video from “Red Sox First Pitch” above.
