Got the RSTN (Royals Sports Television Newtwork) feed last night. In the first inning , Bob Davis (I think) was blabbling like a senile moron. I probably should know for sure before I rag on him, but what the hell ...
He first said that Fenway Park was a great park for hitting home runs (this year, it is the hardest park in all of baseball in which to hit a HR).
That went right into a discussion of the Fenway bullpens "out where Ted Williams used to patrol". TSW, of course, played left field for the Sox. (He probably meant to say that the Red Sox built the bullpens to bring in the fences so Ted could hit more home runs, but he didn't come remotely close to hinting that that was his point.)
Later, Paul Splittorf talked about a game in which Ortiz, then with the Twins, was hit on the wrist with a pitch by a Royals pitcher. Later in the game Ortiz belted a home run. It turned out that the earlier pitch had broken his hand -- so he had hit the HR with a broken wrist.
I checked Retrosheet and Ortiz has been hit by a Royals pitcher only once in his entire career -- August 3, 2001. And he did not hit a home run in that game.
It was his only HBP of 2001. Ortiz was hit in the 2nd inning and stayed in the game until he was removed after doubling in the 10th inning. He also played the next two days. I doubt those games were also played with a broken wrist.
