David Ortiz Tracking Down A Pop Fly Could Take All Night

David Ortiz is a designated hitter who only really plays first base in interleague contests away from Fenway. Tonight, the Red Sox were in Cincinnati, which sports a decent amount of foul territory by first base. David Ortiz moved his legs, one in front of the other, at a higher rate of speed than normal, and covered almost all of that foul territory trying to track down a pop up that landed in the first row. He did not get it.


He got real close, but no dice. Instead, a Reds fan got a souvenir and a high five from Papi. And we all got to watch him shuffle around, out of his element. Everyone wins!
