Papi Unlikely To Participate In All-Star Home Run Derby

David Ortiz will probably not participate in this year's All-Star Home Run Derby in San Diego. Said Papi, "The travel will be a lot and I’ll have commitments when I’m out there. It’s probably not a good idea." Hey, been there/done that anyway—Ortiz won the Derby in 2010 with a ridiculous 32 homeruns. The 40-year old Ortiz is running away with the DH balloting for the All-Star Game itself—having so far received almost 1.5 million fan votes.
