With Opening Day just ten days away, the role of David Ortiz on the 2017 Red Sox remains undefined. While multiple sources have suggested things like broadcasting, roving instruction or marketing—nothing has been solidified. Apparently, the main reason is that Ortiz is so busy with a multitude of non-baseball activities. Team President Sam Kennedy recently stated, "We will continue to chat and put something together when the time is right for him". It seems clear that Big Papi will not be a ubiquitous presence around the clubhouse—at least not at the start of the season. Stay tuned.
