David Ortiz Thanks Red Sox Fans After Joining 500-Home Run Club

David Ortiz has a big heart. That much always has been known about the Boston Red Sox designated hitter.

Ortiz joined the historic 500-home run club Saturday with a pair of homers in Boston’s 10-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, and afterwards, Big Papi showed his appreciation for Red Sox fans with a thank you tweet.

Red Sox Nation salutes you right back, Big Papi.
