Athletics Give David Ortiz Big Papi-Sized Bottle Of Wine As Retirement Gift

David Ortiz now has something to drink with his 34 pounds of salmon and his handmade cigars.

The Red Sox slugger has made his final trip to the Coliseum for Boston’s series against Oakland, and the Athletics honored Ortiz before Friday’s game. The A’s gave Ortiz a bottle of wine — something for which Northern California is well known — and it also happened to be enormous.

Ortiz has received plenty of gifts from teams around Major League Baseball in his final season, including the salmon from the Seattle Mariners (along with his first contract ever) and the cigars from the Chicago White Sox. Big Papi could receive  more soon, too, as he’ll visit Petco Park in San Diego and Rogers Centre in Toronto for the last time on the Red Sox’s current road trip.
