About David Ortiz

Throughout his 20 year MLB career, David “Big Papi” Ortiz was one of the most beloved players. After an incredible career that including three World Series championships that ended in 2016, Big Papi now uses his free time to focus on the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, which provides assistance to children in the Dominican Republic and New England who require cardiac care. Always a fan favorite, the Dominican Republic native has cemented himself among the many Boston sports legends, and always brings his unique and positive vibes to his social media following of almost 4M, giving the world exactly what it needs: more Big Papi.
