Red Sox To Discuss Broadcasting Role For David Ortiz

Among a raft of other opportunities with the team, the Red Sox will discuss a broadcasting role with retired DH David Ortiz. Sox President Sam Kennedy stated that team executives will meet with Big Papi in the Dominican next week to talk through several possible roles. It's known that Ortiz is already interested in some media involvement, so locking him up for some sort of NESN role would be a smart idea. Said Kennedy, "He did say after the season, 'Let's just talk in January.' He was so overwhelmed and tired. It's a good time to start that conversation. I know he has a lot of plans — broadcasting, a lot of businesses he's involved with. We'll see what he's up to, but we really hope to cement something so he's part of the organization."
