BOSTON (CBS) — David Ortiz may no longer be a member of the Boston Red Sox on the field, but he’s very clearly a member of the Red Sox For Life Club.
Ortiz, working as an analyst for Fox Sports’ postseason coverage, was on the set at the desk when Jackie Bradley Jr. launched a grand slam to give the Red Sox an 8-2 lead in the eighth inning of Game 3 of the ALCS in Houston.
Though Ortiz hasn’t played since 2016, he can still celebrate as if he’s in a dugout.
Check out Ortiz’s reaction below. The first reaction might have been for Mitch Moreland getting hit by a pitch to score a run, with the big reaction coming on Bradley’s big swing:
That’s a bigger celebration than Ortiz had for most of his clutch postseason hits.
The Red Sox would hold on to that 8-2 lead to win and take a 2-1 series lead over the defending-champion Astros.
