Orioles give retiring David Ortiz the dugout phone he smashed three years ago

Great gift, huh?

Although the Red Sox and Orioles are playing a pivotal series in Baltimore this week, the hosts found a good time to gift retiring Boston slugger David Ortiz a spectacular gift.

A dugout phone.

This one.

The one he smashed in 2013, memorably.

What a cool gift! Adam Jones presented it to Papi on the field before Thursday’s game.

The Orioles also donated $10,000 to the World Pediatric Project to help sick kids in the Dominican Republic, so that’s better.

We will miss him. The rival Orioles may not, honestly.
