I hope they leave it there forever, so I can show it to my kids and my kids’ kids and say: "The man who hit that ball was an ageless giant. He hit home runs and swore often. He was the best of man’s impulses."
"Dad…David Ortiz is still alive. He’s the batting coach. He’s literally right there."
"I know, but it’s more dramatic if we speak of him in the past tense."
