My StoryBook - 2017
As a key part of the Boston Red Sox for 14 years, David "Big Papi" Ortiz has helped the team win 3 World Series, bringing back a storied franchise from "never wins" to "always wins." He made Boston and the Red Sox his home, his place of work, and his legacy. In this memoir, Ortiz opens up about his life in baseball and about the problems he sees in Major League Baseball, about former teammates, opponents, coaches, and executives, and about the weight of expectation whenever he stepped up to the plate. The result is a revelatory, fly-on-the wall story of a career by a player with a lot to say at the end of his time in the game, a game to which he gave so much and which gave so much to him.
