This photo was snapped right after Boston Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz (aka Big Papi) was involved in a car accident with his white Audi R8. According to ESPN, Ortiz was actually on his was to Fenway Park for tonights game. Luckily it sounds like Ortiz is just fine — his R8 on the other hand may need a little TLC.
Shout out to Mark for the tip!
