In November 1992, David Ortiz signed as a free agent with the Seattle Mariners, yet he played only in clubs. In September 1996, he went to play for the Minnesota Twins, and the player debuted in Major League Baseball on 2nd September 1997 in the game against the Chicago Cubs. However, injuries plagued him, and although he performed relatively well when given the opportunity, at the end of the 2002 season it was decided not to renew his contract. As a result, he signed with the Boston Red Sox team, and a year later appeared for the first time in his career in the All-Star Game, then in the 2004 season in the American League Championship Series the Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees. It should be said that Ortiz was chosen the most valuable player which made him not only famous but also added sums to the total size of David’s net worth. In the World Series the Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals, thus breaking the so-called Curse of the Bambino. In the 2005 season he scored the most RBI (148)in the league, and had an index of 0.604 slugging percentage (2nd score in the league), on-base percentage 0,397 (4th result in the league), 47 gained home runs (2nd result in the league ) and 119 gained runs.
In the 2006 season Ortiz set a record of 54 home runs ina single season. A year later he starred in the World Series in which the Red Sox defeated the Colorado Rockies in four games. In 2009, there was a hoax that the player had tested positive during doping control six years previously. Ortiz denied that he had ever taken steroids, and the positive result could be a result of the application of supplements and vitamins at that time. In May 2012, he signed a new two-year contract, and in 2013 in the 20-4 win over the Detroit Tigers, the player scored the 2,000th hit of his career. In 2013, Ortiz played in six games of the World Series and was selected the most valuable player in the finals. In 2015 in a game against the Tampa Bay Rays Ortiz reached a target of 500 home runs, consequently listed as the 27th player in MLB history to achieve that feat.
The player has his own ritual to point index fingers to the sky after hitting the plate of the home run. This he does in honour of his passed away mother.
In his personal life, the baseball player is married to Tiffany who gave birth to their three children, and although the couple filed for divorce in 2013 they later reconciled.
