David Ortiz Says Goodbye To Detroit, Where His Homers Broke Tigers Fans’ Hearts


David Ortiz plays his final series in Detroit this weekend, and Tigers fans probably are happy to see the Boston Red Sox slugger go.

That’s because Big Papi has terrorized the Motor City throughout his 20-year career. His .319 batting average at Comerica Park is even higher than his career mark at Fenway (.311), and his 21 homers and 56 RBIs in 56 games in Detroit’s newer ballpark (Ortiz also had two at-bats at now-demolished Tiger Stadium) are more than impressive.

Then there’s the moments that Ortiz made the Tigers pay in Boston.

NESN.com’s Rachel Holt, along with Foxwoods Resort Casino, helps Big Papi say goodbye to Detroit. Check it out in the video above.
