15David Ortiz

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

In now his final season, “Big Papi” is adding the final touches to a resume that seems to be worthy of a Hall of Fame nod. One of the most clutch hitters the game has ever seen, the slugger was an integral piece of the three Red Sox World Series

championships dating back to 2004. At the plate, he is one of the most feared hitters in baseball, as pitchers know he’s liable to leave the yard in the blink of an eye. Time and time again, Ortiz has delivered a big hit when his team has needed one.

His colossal home runs usually come hand in hand with slick bat flips and a painfully slow trot around the bases, which opposing pitchers almost always take offense to. He's hit so many big home runs in his career and usually has a reason to celebrate, but it definitely rubs many the wrong way.
