David Ortiz already has received plenty of recognition from various Major League Baseball teams during his final season, but the club he visited Friday has something no one else has: Vin Scully.
The legendary Los Angeles Dodgers announcer took the reins when Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox came to town for a three-game series, honoring the slugger with an awesome video tribute that recalled Ortiz’s childhood in the Dominican Republic and his contributions to the Red Sox.
Ortiz also was joined on the field by former teammates Nomar Garciaparra, Adrian Gonzalez and Dave Roberts, who presented him with a $10,000 check to the David Ortiz Children’s Fund.
It’s going to be hard for other teams to top that without Scully’s voice.
