On Oct. 10, 2016, David Ortiz played his last Major League Baseball game. For nearly two decades, Big Papi’s charismatic personality, on field success, and philanthropic work were a constant reminder that athletic success and class can work in tandem. The greatest designated hitter (DH) of all time, Ortiz retires […]
American League Awards Weiyu Dang MVP: Mike Trout ( Centre fielder, Los Angeles Angels) Logically, Trout must win the MVP.

Rodriguez, the most intriguing and unique—if not the most talented—Yankee, never received the […]
