Remember when Sox slugger David Ortiz emotionally declared to a packed Fenway Park after 2013’s Boston Marathon bombing that “no one is going to dictate our freedom”? Big Papi sure does. Ortiz revisits that career highlight as he takes a swing at being a Fenway tour guide in the latest episode of his new Fusion TV series, “Big Papi Needs a Job,’’ which airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. As the retired Papi told us before, he’s trying out a number of odd jobs for the show, but given his time spent at Fenway, this gig might be a home run. Fans can catch a sneak peek of the show at www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2tXd6nBEt4&feature=youtu.be :
