David Ortiz has been the face of the Red Sox for the majority of his incredible career. He
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 successful 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
Bambino. After an 86 year drought for the Red Sox after trading away Babe Ruth, Papi led them to a long awaited victory in 2004.
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.
