Let’s go back to 2013. David Ortiz was putting together an all-star season at 37 years old, but on one July night in Baltimore, he was melting down. After arguing with umpire Tim Timmons’ strike zone, Papi got ejected. So he went back into the Red Sox dugout and destroyed the in-dugout phone.

Since Ortiz is playing his last career (regular season) game in Baltimore tonight, the Orioles thought they’d give the slugger a present.


Honestly there’s a lot more left of that phone box than I thought there would be.
