Big moment for Big Papi and Mainers

Maine catches David Ortiz home run ball

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — David Ortiz had a milestone home run Monday night as he tied Mickey Mantle on the all-time list with long ball number 536.

It was a big moment for Big Papi — but an even bigger moment for some men from Maine.

As Ortiz sent the long ball into the right field bullpen, four guys from South Portland were on the backside of that bullpen hoping the ball would bounce to them. It did, and Rob Jordan reached out and snagged the historic home run ball with one hand.

After celebrating, the guys went back to their seats to watch the rest of the game and it wasn't long before Red Sox personnel had found them and wanted to make a deal.
