In each and every visiting ballpark the Boston Red Sox have traveled to this season, opposing teams have done something to honor David Ortiz, who will retire at the end of the season following 20 big league campaigns.
But Big Papi never has received a gift quite like this.
The Davis Mega Maze in Sterling, Mass., partnered with ’47 to carve out a corn maze in the shape of Ortiz’s likeness and with the words “Thanks Big Papi” also written in corn.
Ortiz was on hand for the grand opening Tuesday, and NESN’s cameras were there to capture the exciting scene.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Ortiz said after seeing the maze for the first time. “It was something that seemed impossible to me to do, but when I started seeing the picture and stuff, I was like ‘Wow, what an amazing job.’ ”
Check out highlights from the maze and Ortiz’s appearance in the video from “NESN Live,” sponsored by Cross Insurance, in the video above.
