The David Ortiz farewell tour now features backrubs for first basemen

The David Ortiz farewell tour is going great. And while Big Papi's last season can be unilaterally celebrated by opposing teams, filled with standing ovations and creative parting gifts, Ortiz would rather return the favor.

On Saturday against the Twins, he got a base hit. And instead of taking it seriously on a beautiful day, he decided to give first baseman Byung-Ho Park a massage. This is all about paying it forward. All successful trips to first base should follow with a massage. Plus it makes not getting the out a whole lot better!
