Most Boston Red Sox fans are aware of the immense power of DH David Ortiz, but the slugger took his strength to a whole new level on Thursday afternoon.

A Fenway Park grounds crew attendant had to climb up a ladder and retrieve the ball, which you can see was firmly wedged into the foul pole.

Big Papi would hit an actual home run during the contest later that night, his 24th of the season.  The Sox would win the game 13-2 against the Twins.
