David Ortiz

by Andrew Maynard
(Bethel, CT)

My nominee for baseball's greatest hitters.

I admire this person, because this person is like the father of baseball, with a 148 RBI's and 54 home runs! That's his stats, with a robotic anti human that throws 100 mile an hour fast balls every pitch. He also is on my favorite team, The Boston Red Sox, so he's A O K with me. This is why I admire this person.
