There’s no way around it, the Boston Red Sox will miss David Ortiz’s presence.
The legendary designated hitter hung up his cleats at the conclusion of last season, much to the chagrin of fans and players, especially Hanley Ramirez.
Ramirez spoke with the media Thursday and explained that even though Ortiz is retired, Big Papi still is making an impact on his career. The two have been in contact throughout the offseason, and Hanley says he still is getting tips from his mentor.
To hear what else Ramirez said about Ortiz, as well as the upcoming season, check out the video above from “Red Sox from Fort Myers.”
