Rare SI Photos of David Ortiz

Following David Ortiz’s final game, a 4-3 loss to Cleveland in a three-game ALDS sweep, the fans at Fenway chanted "We're not leaving!" and "Thank you, Pa-pi!" for more than 10 minutes while the Indians celebrated their victory until the beloved slugger came back onto the field. Ortiz, a 10-time All-Star and MVP of the 2013 World Series, won three titles with the Red Sox, a team that had gone 86 years without a championship before his arrival in Boston but won three times in his 14 years with the team. We present these 34 rare SI photos of No. 34, one of the greatest designated hitters of all time, Big Papi.
