VIDEO: Adorable kid hits David Ortiz with ball in the....uhhh...midsection


This video clip is before last night's game against Tampa Bay, Ortiz would shrug off the pain this caused him and get on base twice in the Red Sox' series clinching effort against the Rays.

Deadspin has video from behind the cutest kid ever (OK, at least on the field at that time), and he has quite a nice looking swing.

Good form, bad aim, at least as far as Big Papi is concerned.

Here's the last video we had of Ortiz on the site.

Last night's result much more tame, and just as entertaining.
