Let Big Papi hit one out of your backyard

It appears that a charity organization in Boston is auctioning off the chance to play whiffle ball with David Ortiz at your home. And the "game" will be covered by NESN. That's a pretty cool item.

Given that lunch with Theo Epstein went for like $16,000, how much do you think whiffle ball with Big Papi will go for? I gotta think it would be even more than $16,000, if for no other reason than the fact that lunch with Theo was limited to 3 people (I think), whereas a whiffle ball game with David Ortiz could be enjoyed by a lot more people.

(BTW, what would happen if Derek Jeter bid on this and won? Would David Ortiz have to go to his house to play baseball? Could Jeter make him go to Yankee Stadium to play whiffle ball against the Yankees ? Would Ortiz convince other Red Sox to go along with him so he wouldn't be outnumbered? Sounds like a good ridiculous plot device for some stupid movie....)

A) This is one of the best charity auction items I've ever heard of. Having Big Papi over for whiffle ball is sweet enough, but you forget the comedy that likely is an enormous guy like Papi with a tiny, light whiffle bat.

B) The Jeter idea is also inspired. This needs to be part of a movie.
