We celebrated long-ago Twin David Ortiz when he dropped an F-bomb in the pregame ceremoniy when the Red Sox returned to action after the Boston Marathon bombing. Here's an uglier scene from Saturday night.
Here's the Associated Press description of what happened:
Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was ejected from the game in the seventh inning by home plate umpire Tim Timmons for arguing a called strike during an at-bat that ended in a strikeout.
Ortiz destroyed the covers of two dugout phones with his bat, then charged onto the field and had to be restrained by manager John Farrell and bench coach Torey Lovullo. Ortiz finally relented, but as a final gesture he threw an elbow pad in Timmons' direction.
The shattered pieces of plastic rained on teammate Dustin Pedroia, who finally yelled, 'Stop!' at the enraged Ortiz.
