Dear Mr. Ortiz,
Thanks for the jaw dropping home runs, the clutch hits, and the general awesomeness you display on a nightly basis.
For the endless smiles, hugs, and "awww" moments you give us as we sit in our Barcoloungers cheering you and your boys on a daily basis, an entire Red Sox Nation is grateful.
As you displayed Thursday night vs. Seattle, you find new ways to make us smile: the spontaneous hug you gave to the Mariner on the base paths instead of depositing him into shallow LF made me, along with 36,000 plus at Fenway laugh out loud.
Finally, as a father of 3 young children, thanks for being the rare athlete that children can look up too. From your generous charitable actions, your random man-hugs of teammates and foes alike, and the fact you play the game the right way, you make me proud to be a fan of the game of baseball.
The world could use more men like you.
A New Thing for a New Year
