Like father, like son: David Ortiz is one of the most powerful and influentials sluggers of the past decades, and his legacy will always be present at the Fenway Park and for Latino players, he will remain as an inspiration.


But imagine calling papi to the Big Papi himself and having in your DNA the superhuman ability to smash and destroy a baseball at will. Well, for D'Angelo Ortíz, it looks like he first learned to use a bat instead of walking.


In a video posted on social media by ESPN's Enrique Rojas, we can see how good it is Ortiz' son, as, with only 13 years of age, it looks like he has a promising future.

The teenager is in Miami preparing himself to follow the footsteps of his legendary father when the time finally arrives. If D'Angelo can make it to the Majors, he will probably join fellow Dominican and son of a legend, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. at some point in the future.
