David Ortiz's Request of Notre Dame Football

This is pretty cool.

Notre Dame Football Equipment Manager Ryan Grooms @NDFBEquipment sent out this tweet, acknowledging that Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz requested that Notre Dame wide receiver Torii Hunter, Jr. (son of recently retired baseball star Torii Hunter, Sr.) -- be assigned his locker for tonight's game at Fenway Park.

Classy move.

The Fighting Irish played their first game at Fenway Park back in 1944 -- beating Dartmouth 64 - 0.  The coach that year -- Ed McKeever -- was "standing in" for the legendary Frank Leahy, who left Notre Dame to serve our country in the Navy during World War II.

Tonight's game with Boston College will be Notre Dame's second football game at Fenway Park -- 71 years later.
