With names like Fisk, Williams and Yastrzemski in the history of the Red Sox it isn't easy for a guy that has been with the team a relatively short time to capture an award like "Greatest Clutch Hitter in Red Sox history". That's exactly what David Ortiz did though after providing three game winning hits in the 2004 MLB playoff as he led the Red Sox to their first championship in 86 years. (You might have heard about it...)
Here is a nice article about David, and the things that keep him focused on the things that are important in life. I can relate to a lot of what he has to say, especially concerning the loss of his mother, and how that just puts everything else into perspective.
