YahooDavid Ortiz is now officially retired, no longer the big slugger for the Boston Red Sox. If he took a post-baseball job, what do you think it would be? Commentator? Motivational speaker? Coach?

There’s another option! Big Papi did a commercial for TurboTax, released on Sunday, and he’s taken on a very appropriate new career.

David Ortiz teaching tennis at a country club is both hilarious and terrifying. Who wouldn’t want to learn tennis from Big Papi? (Related: who wouldn’t want to learn pretty much anything from Big Papi?!) And especially since he’s teaching his students to whack the ball so it travels at the speed of light. That seems like a skill that would come in handy.

I wouldn’t call this ad hilarious, but I get the joke that he plays tennis like he plays baseball which makes him good at baseball but bad at tennis. The connection between this and TurboTax is a slight stretch but the idea that Ortiz is a very rich man and is losing so many tennis balls that he needs to deduct them is a passable plot line.

Ortiz’ racquet flip is perfect and his swing still looks pretty good–might he cancel his retirement????

Probably not. He’s not a terrible actor and his life after baseball looks pretty good so far.
