David Ortiz Follows Through On His Promise To Hit Home Run For Young Red Sox Fan Fighting For His Life

David Ortiz promised Maverick, a young fan battling a heart condition that he’d hit a homerun for him in the Red Sox Friday night game against the New York Yankees and boy did he ever deliver. Big Papi crushed a 2-run home run into the Green Monster seats in the bottom of the eighth inning, giving the Red Sox a 4-2 win over the visiting Yankees.

This is why I love sports and why David Ortiz will forever be in the pantheon of Boston sports legends. How incredible it is to give hope to this young boy.

Keep fighting, Maverick!!!!

Nice work, Papi!
