Attorney Nicholas Ellis is a big New England Sports fan and lover of Major League Baseball. Ellis loves going to Red Sox games at Fenway Park to cheer on one of his all time favorite players, David Ortiz.
After this MLB season, Boston Red Sox superstar, future Hall of Fame hitter and first baseman David Ortiz, aka Big Papi, will be calling it a career after 20 years in the MLB. It’s hard to believe. Whether you’re a Red Sox fan or a pure baseball fan, you always like to see him hit one out the park. Now, if he’s going up against your favorite team; every time you see him at the plate against your starting pitcher on the mound even you think he’s going to hit homerun off that pitcher. Big Papi always steps to the plate with a scowl on his face that would topple Michael Jordan or Kobe. It seems that he’s just ready to crush one out the park every time.
Ortiz has accomplished so much in his legendary career. He is a three-time World Series Champion, nine-time All-Star, six-time Silver Slugger Award winner, seven-time Edgar Martinez award winner, AL Championship Series MVP in 2004 and the MVP of the 2013 World Series. Big Papi is also tied 25th All-Time on the MLB home run list with 509 career homers. And, he is also the all-time leader in MLB history with 453 home runs, 1,464 runs batted in and 2,051 career hits all by a DH. Ortiz also holds the Red Sox single-season homerun record for when he hit 54 homeruns during the 2006 season.
In his 13 year career, his presence resurrected one of the most proud franchises in the MLB. He helped put the Red Sox back on the map on a global scale when he finally helped the team break the infamous “Curse of Bambino” when the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004; it was the Red Sox’s first championship in 86 years. They would go on to win two more World Series titles in 2007 and 2013 respectively. In his last season, Big Papi is trying to deliver Red Sox Nation its 4th title in 12 years, so he can write the perfect ending to the story of his magnificent career. Just like Peyton Manning did a few months ago after winning the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos. Big Papi, we’re going to miss you when this 2016 MLB season comes to an end.
