David Ortiz Yelled At Press Box After Not Getting Credit For A Hit

David Ortiz yelled at and gestured towards the press box during today’s game against the Twins seemingly upset that he was not given him credit for a base hit on a play ruled an error.

The incident came at the end of the eighth inning of the scoreless game. Ortiz hit a hard ground ball to first base. Joe Mauer was able to knock the ball down, but the ball scooted away from him and Ortiz reached first base without a throw.

After the inning ended on a double-play, several media members at the game reported that Ortiz started yelling at the press box and giving the thumbs down signal towards the official scorer.

Ortiz has long had a reputation as a selfish player and this latest incident will not help.

Here is the play in question.
