David Ortiz has won three World Series championships, made nine All-Star appearances and earned nearly $150 million over the course of 19 big league seasons, so he clearly chose the right career for his very particular set of skills.

But if he never picked up a bat, Big Papi had a backup plan. He'd be a porn star.

That's what we learned thanks to the latest installment of The Players' Tribune's "What the (Blank)?" series, where athletes answer 10 wide-ranging questions about themselves like it's the first day of elementary school. Ortiz reveals the smartest athlete he's ever met (that would be current teammate Craig Breslow) and his favorite food ("fried chicken"), but things really get interesting when he's asked what his dream job would be if he wasn't slugging baseballs out of Fenway Park. And, yep, he'd take a shot at porn.

That's not really surprisingly when you read the rest of Ortiz's answers. His go-to song is Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back" – which he refers to as "I like big butt" – and his favorite song lyric of all-time is "I love it when you call me Big Papa." Maybe he was just supremely horned-up when Derek Jeter sent him over the questionnaire, or perhaps he just thinks about sex 24/7. Either way, it seems like Ortiz's porn dreams might actually come true.

Since revealing his dirty little secret to the world, Ortiz has been offered $100,000 from Vivid Entertainment to star in a flick called "Big Papi's Slugger." And because his "personality is too big for just one," CEO Steve Hirsch said he'd play alongside four or five women – just more opportunities for RBIs.
