This has never happened at any other rolling rally. In 2013, on the Charles River, David Ortiz made eye contact with a fan on a nearby boat. The fan offered a beer and Ortiz smiled. The fan tossed it and Big Papi showed that he was more than a designated hitter.

Mookie Betts, a two-time Gold Glover, was amazing yesterday. He was protecting us all with his lightning-quick hands, almost like a goalie under attack.

He also was not happy.

“This definitely has got to stop,” Betts said.
