The Beast. Double X. In honor of Opening Day. Was at the game in 2006 when Ortiz broke Foxx' 50 home run record (most by a Red Sox)... it was Papi's first at-bat of the game so most missed it (traffic on the 'Pike was killer, left tickets in the glovey, freekin beer line...etc). The ball fell about 30 feet infront, right/center bleachers. Crowd went bananas.
