Orioles gift Ortiz with destroyed dugout phone

Prior to the beginning of David Ortiz’ final regular-season game at Camden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, the retiring Boston Red Sox slugger got a gift from the host club that he may want to forget.

Adam Jones presented Big Papi with the dugout phone he destroyed during a July 27, 2013 contest between the two clubs.

Ortiz didn’t look overjoyed to relive the memory as it played on the big screen, but he did accept the gift with a smile as the Orioles announced a $10,000 charitable donation in his name and played a montage of some of his best performances against the New York Yankees.

For those unfamiliar with Ortiz’ 2013 run-in with the phone, take a look.
