David Ortiz Will Leave Toronto With Most Home Runs By Visiting Player


September 9, 2016

The David Ortiz farewell tour continues this weekend when the Boston Red Sox take on the Toronto Blue Jays in a crucial series that might have major postseason implications.

The Jays will have their hands full with Big Papi, who has tormented them over the years and will leave Rogers Centre as one of the most successful visiting players of all-time.

Ortiz’s pinnacle moment in Canada came in 2014, when he hit a towering three-run bomb off R.A. Dickey and passed Alex Rodriguez for the most home runs by a visiting player at Rogers Centre.

Overall, Ortiz has hit 40 home runs, driven in 105 runs and posted a .264 average in 121 games in Ontario’s capital. Big Papi has also hit five home runs in a single season at the ballpark on four separate occasions (2004, 2005, 2011 and 2014).

Foxwoods Resort Casino helps Big Papi bid adieu to Canada by highlighting some of his biggest career achievements at Rogers Centre in the video above.
