has been one of Boston sports’ most beloved players and has left his mark on the hearts of
Red Sox fans for decades. With Big Papi’s final season coming to an end, there has been a lot of talk about the legacy that he will be leaving. Some people are going as far to say that his legacy will be “larger than life!”

David Ortiz has been the only player for the Red Sox to win three world series since the great Babe Ruth in 1918.

Big Papi is arguably one of the most big-papi-3successful players to ever wear a Red Sox uniform. After all, Mr. Ortiz was the leader of the team that reversed the curse of the Great

Papi’s a shoe-in for the Red Sox Hall of Fame and MLB Hall of Fame. Even though Papi struggles to steal bases, he easily stole all of our hearts.
