David Ortiz’ Cements His Name Into The MLB Hall Of Fame With 400th Home Run

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz may have well cemented his name into the MLB Hall Of Fame with his 400th and 401st home runs in last night’s game. Ortiz joined Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski on Saturday in becoming the third player ever in Red Sox history to hit 400 home runs. Ortiz hit two homers in a 10-7 win over the Houston Astros for the historical night for the big slugger.

 

This is what Ortiz said:
“It’s an honor to be out there mentioned with those legends; legendary people that did an amazing job obviously playing for the Red Sox,” Ortiz said of his latest milestone. “Legendary, legendary. Whenever you come to this organization to play, you’re not expecting your name to be mentioned next to those guys, but it happens. You do what you’ve got to do and that’s the only way you get there.”

Ortiz went on to say this after being asked what keeps him motivated after all these years of playing:
“Pride,” Ortiz responded when asked what motivates him after all these years. “You need to have pride in what you do. You got to make sure that you go 100 percent out there and you do — you play your best. The fans come in to watch you play, and you got to give them what they expect.”

The Red Sox crowd acknowledged Ortiz’s feat with a huge standing ovation. He greeted them with a curtain call of his own.
