David Ortizis cleaning house…
The 44-year-old Dominican former Boston Red Sox slugger, whose nickname is “Big Papi,” is have an estate sale, and he’s selling memorabilia from his illustrious Major League Baseball career.
But Ortiz, a 10-time MLB All-Star, is also selling other sundry goods, including a neon Rolls Royce sign, a backyard composter and a stone owl sculpture, at an estate sale scheduled for Saturday at his home in the affluent Boston suburb of Weston.
“In addition to some exceptional sports memorabilia, you’ll find beautiful furniture and decor, women’s designer clothing and accessories, gym equipment, game room tables and more,” the company running the sale said on its website.
The baseball-related items for sale include framed jerseys, Ortiz bobbleheads, Big Papi commemorative Coca-Colabottles, signed Red Sox photographs and a Boston Bruinsjersey with the name Ortiz and his No. 34 on the back.
The three-time World Serieschampion and his wife put their six-bedroom, 8,100-square-foot home on the market last year for $6.3 million, but it’s not currently listed.
Ortiz retired in 1997, after 20 seasons with the MLB. Among designated hitters, he’s the all-time leader in MLB history for home runs (485), RBIs (1,569), and hits (2,192). Regarded as one of the best clutch hitters of all time, Ortiz had 11 career walk-off home runs during the regular season and two during the postseason.
