David Ortiz won't manage for fear of gray hair, has to ask wife about playing in World Baseball Classic

David Ortiz played in his final All-Star Game presented by MasterCard on Tuesday night. Before the contest, he delivered a rousing speech to his comrades and during the AL's 4-2 victory, he went 0-for-1 with a walk. When you're Big Papi in your final Midsummer Classic, that deserves a standing ovation and hugs from the entire team. 

So, what's next for the 10-time All-Star? Acting? Mayor of Boston? Well, according to his postgame interview (which you can watch in the main clip above), it's not the WBC -- for fear of his wife's reaction. He's also not very interested in managing because he doesn't want to get stressed out and go gray. Not all managers go that route, David.

Be like Brad. Don't leave us.
