The Dominican-born slugger was instrumental in ending the Boston Red Sox 86-year-old World Series title drought. He also helped them win a title in 2007 and 2013.

Bad idea: They made the bobblehead look like this.

When he heard the news, David Ortiz reacted like this:

Just kidding. “That’s supposed to be me?” Ortiz said, laughing it off.
