David Ortiz Delivers Intense Message to the Boston Red Sox

In the aftermath of Boston’s first World Series victory since 1918, David Ortiz delivered an emotional post-game speech to rally his teammates and praise their fans. This clip is a reminder that sports can bring people together in some really intense moments

David Ortiz is the “big papi ortiz” of the Boston Red Sox. He has a long history in baseball and he delivered an intense message to the team during a game on July 4th, 2017.

David Ortiz got his big moment earlier this year when he was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as the lone player on the ballot. Ortiz played Major League Baseball for 20 years before becoming a star with the Boston Red Sox in 2003.

Big Papi spent 14 years in Boston, helping the Red Sox win three World Series championships. His relationships to the squad are still strong six years after his retirement. In classic Ortiz manner, he offered an uplifting speech to the Red Sox teammates on Tuesday.

In 2003, the Red Sox gave David Ortiz a fresh lease on life.

Ortiz began his MLB career with the Minnesota Twins, where he spent the first six years of his career. After his greatest season in 2002, he became a cost-cutting victim. After hitting 20 home runs and driving in 75 runs while batting.272, the small-market Twins faced the prospect of having to sign him to a long-term contract. Minnesota made the decision to let him go.

The Red Sox signed Ortiz before the 2003 season, thanks to some aggressive recruitment by pitcher Pedro Martinez. He was an immediate impact in Boston, hitting 31 home runs and driving in 101 runs in his debut season.

He made his first of five consecutive MLB All-Star Game appearances the following season, when he hit 41 home runs. He was in fourth place for MVP and led the Red Sox to their first World Series championship since 1918.

With the Red Sox, Ortiz won three World Series championships and was a 10-time All-Star. During his time in Boston, he became the franchise’s face. He was noted for coming through in the clutch during the playoffs.

Ortiz has 541 home runs and a.286 batting average in his career. In January 2022, he was admitted into the Hall of Fame.

The Boston Red Sox are getting a strong message from David Ortiz.

After a lockout postponed the start of the season, baseball is getting back into the flow of things. In the team’s first meeting at JetBlue Park on Tuesday, Red Sox manager Alex Cora addressed his players. Cora completed his speech by pointing to the video screen in the outfield and announcing that he had a special visitor who wanted to say something.

Ortiz walked up to the podium and gave his typical impassioned statement. It was sprinkled with a couple of expletives, as is customary.

His message was brief and succinct, but to the point.

Ortiz responded, “You guys have the talent.” “You guys have new colleagues, and the most essential thing is that you learn from each other. You won’t go far if you don’t discover what your colleagues are capable of from them.

“Guys, take care of business.” Take advantage of the wonderful chemistry you’ve developed. Say ‘f*** everyone’ as you take that field. ‘We’re the f***ing best,’ says the narrator.

Ortiz is also famous for another expletive-laden rant.

Ortiz isn’t one to hold back. He’s never done it before.

That was especially true when the people of Boston needed it the most. It occurred on April 20, 2013, a week after the Boston Marathon bombings. The Sox were on their way to Logan Airport for a series in Cleveland when they heard the news. They had been playing at home the morning of the race, as they usually do.

Ortiz addressed the fans before the game when they returned to Fenway a week later. He talked from the depths of his soul.

After snatching the microphone, Ortiz exclaimed, “All right, all right, Boston.” “This shirt we’re wearing today doesn’t say Red Sox on it.” Boston is written on it. We wish to express our gratitude to Mayor Menino, Governor Patrick, and the entire police department for their outstanding performance this week.

“This is our f***ing city, and nobody is going to tell us what we can and can’t do.” Maintain your fortitude. “Thank you very much.”

The Fenway Park crowd roared in applause. Ortiz later said that he was so engrossed in what he was saying that he didn’t even know he was swearing.

According to Joon Lee of Bleacher Report, Ortiz claimed, “Dropping the F-bomb, I didn’t even know I had done it.” “Man, I was enraged.”
