This Date in Red Sox History: Papi Power

As David Ortiz continues to struggle with his health following being shot last month, we look back on a much happier times for the slugger.

Nine years ago today David Ortiz won the All-Star Game's Home Run Derby with a dazzling performance, lining ball after ball into the right field stands at Angel Stadium, for a total of 32 long balls - 11 of them in the final round, where he defeats fellow Dominican Hanley Ramirez. He dedicates his performance to his friend, pitcher Jose Lima, who passed away suddenly a few weeks earlier.
