Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz hit his 433rd career home run on Wednesday night. What happened afterward made history.

After Big Papi waited in the batters box to see if the ball he launched to right field would stay fair, he proceeded to break the record for the slowest home run trot ever recorded by the Tater Trot Tracker. The 230-pound Ortiz took 32.91 seconds to jog around the bases. According TaterTrotTracker.com, that time time was slower than the previous record of 31.56 seconds held by Bobby Abreu.
