At least let’s hope so. Congratulations to David Ortiz on a long-overdue homerun blast last night against the Toronto Blue Jays. His AVG may still below the Mendoza line, but the Big Man has his spirit is back which means everything in baseball.
As quoted by Dan Shaughnessy in the Boston Globe today, Papi had this to say:
“My father told me, ‘It’s not going to get worse than this. Get out there, have fun and forget about what happened. Do what you know how to do.’ “
Now that’s advice that every ballplayer from T-Ball onwards can take to heart from their dad!
