David Ortiz Bids Farewell To Baltimore, Site Of His Dugout Phone Blow-Up


September 19, 2016

The David Ortiz farewell tour continues this week when the Boston Red Sox face the Baltimore Orioles in a crucial four-game series that should have major postseason implications.

The O’s will have their hands full with Big Papi, who has lit up Oriole Park at Camden Yards over the last few years of his career.

Despite the good numbers, Ortiz’s most iconic moment in the Charm City came in 2013, when he destroyed a dugout phone after disagreeing with umpire Tim Timmons’ strike zone. The temper tantrum earned Big Papi an ejection, as well as a $5,000 fine.

Overall, Ortiz has hit 28 home runs, driven in 82 runs and posted a .259 average in 118 games in Baltimore. Big Papi also has hit 12 home runs in the O’s home park since 2013.
