Big Papi is back with the Red Sox...  FOREVER!  No, really!

According to ESPN, David Ortiz is back with the Red Sox.  But, he won't be playing.  He'll be working in a variety of roles including as a mentor to the players, as a free agent recruiter.

It is the first time the Red Sox have made a hire like this.

Ortiz played 14 of his 20 seasons with the Red Sox.

Additionally, he has partnered with a New England bank to do some good.
