Today David Ortiz received an honorary doctorate at the Boston University commencement ceremony.

He was chosen for this prestigious honor for his work on the field and in his charity work. He attended the ceremony in his cap and gown but was not scheduled to speak. The commencement speech was given by Bonnie Hammer who is the chairman of NBC-Universal Cable Entertainment Group.

This is Big Papi's second degree as back in April he received an honorary degree from the New England Institute of Technology in Rhode Island.

Congrats Dr. Papi!
