Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has sent many baseballs deep into orbit. 

And now, with his years upon years of wisdom from the game of baseball, Ortiz believes he could have been apart of programs to send people and things into orbit.

“If I had the mentality that I have right now 20 years ago, who knows? I might be working for NASA,” Ortiz said. “Experience goes a long way.”

Who knows if Ortiz could have been an employee for the space program. But what we do know is his baseball expertise has made him a likely candidate for the Baseball Hall of Fame. 

At the age of 40, Ortiz is still dominating the competition, smacking 36 home runs this season. That’s a new MLB record for the most home runs by a 40-year-old player. His 539 home runs are 17th all-time.
