Before Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday, the Red Sox joined the Rays in Tampa Bay for a workout day on Sunday. David Ortiz decided to mix things up at batting practice, taking swings with a non-regulation aluminum bat.

Watch as Big Papi makes hitting homers look even easier than he usually does -- producing moonshot after moonshot like a one-man space program. Good thing the Trop has a roof, or St. Petersburg would've been forced to declare a citywide state of emergency.

Fun fact: Hear "Blurred Lines" in the background? That's thanks to Clay Buchholz, who served as honorary BP DJ. The starter's playlist also featured Eminem's "Lose Yourself."
