Library Journal 07/01/2017 The last remaining member of the 2004 World Champion Boston Red Sox team retired at the end of the 2016 season: the beloved "Big Papi," David Ortiz. His immense talent and larger-than-life personality made him seem nearly immortal. In this debut autobiography, the athlete looks back at his storied baseball career and upbringing with great pride and a little humility, touching on milestones and moments such as the Red Sox championships in 2004, 2007, and 2013, and big hits and plays that turned a game around either for or against his team. There are also the frustrating moments in his career, mainly his stint with the Minnesota Twins and being dogged with accusations of having used performance-enhancing drugs. However, Ortiz also includes stories of his family, including his wife, Tiffany, and their three children. VERDICT Ortiz's book is brisk and lacks a lot of depth, but baseball fans of all loyalties will enjoy learning about his unique experiences in and out of the game.óBrett Rohlwing, Milwaukee P.L.
