David Ortiz Buying Guide
David Ortiz is a retired three-time World Series Champion and a living legend in Major League Baseball. After three seasons with the Minnesota Twins, "Big Papi" joined the Boston Red Sox in 2003 and went on to create his legacy. Within his first full season serving as Boston's designated hitter, Ortiz batted .301, hitting 41 home runs with 139 runs batted in. During the postseason in 2004, Ortiz achieved his biggest early accomplishments, as he recorded a .400 batting average in the playoffs, hit five home runs, and collected 19 RBIs to lead the Red Sox to their first World Series Championship in 86 years. Most notably, David Ortiz was named the MVP of the 2004 American League Championship Series where he led the Boston Red Sox back from a 0-3 deficit to defeat the archrival New York Yankees 4-3 in seven games. In both Games 4 and 5 of the series, Ortiz had walk-off, game-winning hits. The next two seasons would see Big Papi set back-to-back marks of career highs in home runs with 47 in 2005 and 54 in 2006; the latter also broke the single-season record for home runs in Red Sox history. In 2007, David Ortiz further polished his sparkling reputation in Boston baseball history by leading the Red Sox to their seventh World Series Championship and second in four years. One again, Ortiz pulled through in the postseason, as he hit .370 with three home runs and 10 runs batted in the playoffs. At a point when David Ortiz was already etched in history as a Boston legend, he led the Red Sox to win the 2013 World Series Championship and kept his city's spirit alive when it was needed most. With another epic postseason performance, Ortiz sealed his third world title and earned the 2013 World Series MVP award for his efforts. Before his October 2016 retirement, Ortiz' final season as Boston's go-to designated hitter was filled with numerous honoring seasons by teammates and opponents alike. He topped of his career that season with a tenth All-Star selection, a seventh Silver Slugger Awar4d, a second AL Hank Aaron Award and a third AL RBI leader honor.
As one of baseball's brightest superstars, Ortiz continued to flourish offensively for the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox by leading the league in total home runs, RBIs, and hits by a designated hitter.
