David Ortiz will appeal what he revealed was a $5000 fine for taking a bat to the telephone box in the visitors dugout at Camden Yards on July 27. Major League sources had told the Globe last week that Ortiz had received a "significant" fine. Ortiz said he had never heard of a fine being that high and maintains that he didn't start the series of events that led to his being ejected and then destroying the case around the phone with a bat.
