David Ortiz’ Son Signs $5 Contract With Red Sox

BOSTON (CBS) – David Ortiz brought his son D’Angelo up at the end of the press conference announcing his two-year deal Monday. David shared the news that D’Angelo had also signed a contract with the Sox worth $5.

Apparently, David told Red Sox President Larry Lucchino a story about 8-year-old D’Angelo hitting a home run in his ballgame. D’Angelo is a switch-hitter, but came up batting righty to face a right handed pitcher.

Ortiz told him to switch, but D’Angelo said, “I got this, I have more power from the right side.” He then homered.

Larry said he loved the story and said the Sox had to sign him.
