David Ortiz Plays His Final Series At Tampa Bay, Where He Reached An Important Milestone


The David Ortiz farewell tour continues this weekend when the Boston Red Sox take on the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

Big Papi likely will look back fondly at The Trop, thanks to his tremendous numbers there. Ortiz has 34 home runs, 88 RBI and a .263 average lifetime in Tampa Bay entering his final series.

Ortiz’s most significant individual milestone of his entire career also came at Tropicana Field, when hit his 499th and 500th career home runs last season.

Big Papi has some good October memories from Tampa Bay, too. During the 2013 ALDS, Ortiz reached base six times in nine plate appearances as the Red Sox defeated the Rays in four games en route to Big Papi’s third World Series title.
