Big Papi Goin' Off
David Ortiz won the 2010 State Farm Home Run Derby last night, belting 32 home runs in three rounds. He beat former mentee Hanley Ramirez 11-5 in the final round. Big Papi is the first Red Sox player to win the Derby.
"I've been dealing with so many things the past few years. And coming back here and being cheered by the players around the league, that really gives me a lot of excitement."
Ortiz is hoping that his performance will prove to people, especially Sox Nation, that he's back to his true form. I'm just hoping he didn't waste all his power in that laser show. But knowing Papi, he was probably just running on pure adrenaline and support from the fans.
