David Ortiz has begun selling baseball bats inscribed with his famous quote said during his pregame speech at an emotional Fenway Park on April 20. It was the first game the Red Sox played at home following the Marathon Bombings. 

"This is our f***ing city" is the quote that will be engraved on each bat and can be purchased at bigpapi.com with all the proceeds going to the victims of the bombings.
 
There is also a bat with a less vulgar quote, "Nobody's going to dictate our freedom" that can be purchased as well.

The standard baseball bats are selling for $125 each and for $500 you can also get one with a personalized signature from Big Papi.

My Fellow Bostonians,

On April 15, 2013, nearly a decade after I first came to Boston, our city was attacked during one of Boston's most beloved events. Through the great bravery of our emergency service men and women, and the strength of our citizens, Boston has and will continue to perservere through this tragedy. I wanted to figure out a way to do something to help the victims, so I reached out to my partner Marucci Sports who have created these bats to help raise money for those affected by this tragedy. 100% of the net proceeds from these sales will go to the OneFund and other victims of this terrible event. When I gave my speech during the pregame ceremony of our first game back, I fully meant the words I said. Let's get together as a city to show everyone that "nobody is gonna dictate our freedom!".

Boston Strong,

David Ortiz
