Win a chance to hug David Ortiz


Retired Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has launched a campaign on to raise money for the Red Sox Foundation and the David Ortiz Children’s Fund. Fans can visit and donate as little as $10 for the chance to get VIP treatment when the Red Sox retire Big Papi’s number at Fenway Park on June 23. The winner and a guest will get to stay in a four-star hotel, attend Papi’s celebrity comedy roast at the House of Blues and his retirement ceremony at Fenway, and watch the Red Sox vs. Angels game from seats near the Sox dugout. You’ll also get to go to batting practice, take selfies with Ortiz (and give him a congratulatory hug), and bring home a personalized Red Sox jersey autographed by the big man himself.
