One month left to the Opening day and sure we will miss the Red Sox no. 34.
How big was David Ortiz? One of the most hitters of the MLB, certainly the best as DH.

The strength of Big Papi. The Dominican-born player come into the 30 players club who hit more HR all time. It precedes the likes of Ted Williams, Ernie Banks and Lou Gehrig.

In the fourteen years of stay in Boston he has achieved 483 HR with Boston and 58 in the first years with Minnesota.The best period of Ortiz was between 2003 and 2007, making a series of outstanding performances in WAR. Note that in 9 years he  has produced a WAR of 3+.

And finally the Big Papi card. In it I entered some records that represent him (including regular season and postseason).
Thanks for all Big Papi and good luck for the coming years…
