Big Papi’s Slide Comes Up Drastically Short (Video)

David Ortiz isn’t exactly a threat on the base path.  One look at his 11 career stolen bases in 15 seasons makes that quite evident.  However, you would think the 6’4″, 230-pound designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox would have at least learned how to properly slide into second base at some point in his life, but the following clip from last night’s game against the New York Yankees will likely have you thinking otherwise.

P.S. You simply have to love Derek Jeter’s reaction on the play.
