Small Year For Big Papi

Ty JacksonContributor IJanuary 10, 2009

David Ortiz is famous for his clutch hits and big home runs. In 1993 David Ortiz was signed to the Seattle Mariners and played under the name David Arias. Three years later he was traded to the Minnesota Twins for Dave Hollins. Now No. 34 is a perennial all-star ever since his success in Boston and has never looked back.

In 2006, David hit the most home runs he has ever hit in a single season totalling 54. In 2007 he hit for a personal high .332. In 2005 he had the most runs and RBIs in a single season he has ever hit. 2004 was his year for doubles and triples.

In 2008 he made no personal single season records from games to slugging percentage. All year he played through injury and sat out 60+ games because of an injury to the left wrist and continuing pain. All fans of Big Papi are hoping for a comeback in 2009.
