After 19 incredible seasons in the Big Leagues, 2016 will be the last one for David Ortiz. His contribution to the game has been nothing short of spectacular. A fan favorite in Boston where he helped capture three World titles, Ortiz’s on-field numbers have been historic with over 500 career home runs, the most career hits as a designated hitter, and nine All-Star selections. Off the field, Big Papi has been instrumental in helping pave the way for current and future Big Leaguers from the Dominican Republic. Still with all the accolades, stats, and accomplishments, Ortiz is still focused on the same thing: having fun.

Watch David Ortiz describe what he loves about the game of baseball and why he chooses to swing Marucci.
