David Ortiz hit a batting practice home run that got stuck inside Pesky's Pole
You think you've seen David Ortiz do all the cool stuff he could possibly do: His outfits, his speeches, his interactions with fans -- not to mention all the things he's doing on the diamond this season, in what might be the best final year by a batter, ever. There's a limit to how awesome a human can be, right?
And then Big Papi goes and hits a batting practice home run so hard on Thursday that it gets stuck inside Pesky's Pole at Fenway Park, and you remember that no, Ortiz will never stop doing mind-bogglingly cool things.
Well, if he really wants to leave his mark on Fenway before he retires, that's certainly one way to do it.
Now, if Ortiz hits another home run that gets stuck in the foul pole during the Twins-Red Sox matchup, then he will officially cement his title as CPA.
(Coolest Person Alive.)
UPDATE: Papi didn't get a home run stuck in the pole during the Red Sox's 13-2 win, but he did have three hits including, yes, another home run:
