Pedro Martinez, Patriots Among Those Congratulating David Ortiz On Twitter


History was made at Tropicana Field on Saturday.

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz joined the 500-home run club with a pair of homers off Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore.

Former teammates were among those who congratulated Big Papi on Twitter for his momentous achievement.

The Red Sox chronicled the historic feat with some pretty cool tweets.

It was historic in more ways than one for Ortiz.
