CAP CANA, Dominican Republic — The David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic featured a mini-reunion of the 2004 Red Sox.

From left, there’s Terry Francona, Ortiz, Kevin Millar, Tim Wakefield, Pedro Martinez and Johnny Damon.

The tournament was today. There was a pairings party last night hosted by Millar and Sean Casey. Millar introduced himself to the crowd by saying, “I’m the guy who took the walk.”

You know what happened then.

The event benefits the David Ortiz Children’s Fund. Check out their web site to learn more about the work David and his board are doing to help sick children here in the Dominican and back in New England.

It was fun last night to talk baseball with some of the ’04 Sox. Also had a chance to meet Shawn Thornton of the Bruins, who is a tremendously nice guy.

It was fun to speak to gold medal gymnast Aly Raissman of Needham. She said she is planning to compete in the 2016 Games in Rio. David’s event gets a lot of support from celebrities in and out of sports.
