Big Papi says he’s NOT gonna unretire and hit for the Boston Red Sox this season — despite a big endorsement from his legendary ex-teammate, Pedro Martinez.
Pedro got everyone talking Monday when he tweeted out, “Big Papi is working out, and I know he is in baseball shape, and the @RedSox could use a bit of his bat.”
So, when we saw David Ortiz at CC & Amber Sabathia’s PitCCh At Foundation charity event in NYC, we had to ask if a comeback was on the table.
Unfortunately, Ortiz shoots that down … telling TMZ Sports he’s too busy enjoying his retirement and watching quality television programming.
