David Ortiz took 17 years to finally do this one thing. No one in attendance will soon forget.
David Ortiz excels at hitting, like when he reached out to poke a two-run single Wednesday night to give Boston an early lead.

That's a 78-mph curveball that Ortiz poked the other way. Not a bad piece of hitting, but that's why Ortiz is making $14 million this season.
What Ortiz is not paid for is his ability to steal bases, since he'd only swiped 11 in 1,860 games career games. Wednesday night, he made that 12.
That's now one for every 155 games he's played — and this was the first time he'd ever stolen third base.
