The inquiry stems from their on-field skirmish during the 2013 Division Series, when Price was pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays. Ortiz hit two homers off Price in a game and may have admired one of them too long for Price’s liking.
Apparently all that drama is in the rearview mirror now. On Monday, the Red Sox shared the following video of the two of them embracing in the clubhouse at spring training, with Ortiz adding, "I got your back."
2016 will be Ortiz’s final season in the Majors, as he plans to retire after the season (prompting former Sox GM Theo Epstein to send along his well-wishes). By the looks of things, he and Price will have no lingering baggage between them as they try to get the Sox back to the World Series.
