Boston definitely has a new most eligible bachelor.
Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz revealed Sunday that despite his hot start to the season, he is going through a very personal issue. He and his wife, Tiffany, are filing for divorce after nine years of marriage.
“There are some situations in life that work out for a period of time and at some point they don’t work out anymore and you have to move on,” said Ortiz. “I’m moving on. She’s moving on. Hopefully everybody respects that.”
The couple raised three children together: daughters Jessica and Alexandra, and son D’Angelo.
Ortiz is hitting a ridiculous .516 with 2 HR and 11 RBI in 8 games this season.
