With Super Bowl 53 tonight, does New England Patriots QB Tom Brady’s 9 trips outweigh Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz’s 3 trips to the World Series?
Two of the biggest stars to wear a Boston uniform played at the same time. What they have done in their respected games is unparalleled. They both will be immortalized by not only the fans, but first ballot Hall of Famers.
One question remains, Who means more to the fans of New England sports around the globe – Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz or Patriots quarterback Tom Brady?
David Ortiz: The Greatest Designated Hitter.
We all know the success story of Big Papi. How a conversation with Pedro Martinez helped create a legend for all who bared witness, and for the generations to come. He truly is a special talent. The 10-time All-Star, 3-time World Series champion, 7-time silver slugger winner, and World Series MVP has built a career of being clutch.
His career .286 batting average 541 homers and 1768 RBI are some of the best numbers by that position in MLB history. Plus, who could forget his heroics in the 2004 postseason? He had numerous clutch hits to get to the World Series that year, and helped beat the Yankees after being down 3-1 in the series.
He has done a lot in the community as well. He started the David Ortiz Children’s Fund in 2005. It is an outreach program for both Boston Children’s Hospital, and in his native land of the Dominican Republic. Along with all the other outreach programs he has contributed to throughout the years.
Tom Brady: The G.O.A.T in Football.
His name in itself brings nightmares to defenses. The 3-time MVP, 5-time Super Bowl champion, and 2-time offensive player of the year winner still wants to keep playing even years after today’s game.
