          Have you ever heard of David Ortiz?  You might also know him as Big Papi. He played baseball for the Minnesota Twins from 1997 to 2002. He then went on to play for the Boston Red Sox from 2003 to 2016. He wore number 34. He was a legend on the field, but he wouldn’t be the player he is today without the help of Manny Ramirez, Hanley Ramirez, and Dustin Pedroia and those are just a few people who helped him along the way. When the Twins traded him to the Red Sox that was a big mistake.The Twins will never get David back now. He was a great player over the years and now he is a baseball legend.
