David Ortiz Cements His Place in Red Sox History With Spectacular Postseason Performance (Video)

The Boston Red Sox are world champions, but the celebration may not have been possible without the man who has won three titles with the team — David Ortiz.

Ortiz was named the Most Valuable Player of the World Series, but he earned that title long before the postseason began. He shined when his city needed him most. Big Papi was a huge part of the team’s inspirational turnaround this season– he was the only member from the 2004 World Series team, and he embraced the roles of leader and motivator.

Hear more about how Ortiz has etched his name in Red Sox history books in the above video.
