David Ortiz’s Phenomenal Season - Beyond the Box Score

Earlier today, David Ortiz launched his 400th career home run, a solo shot off A’s starter A.J. Griffin in the fourth inning. He became just the 49th player in MLB history to reach this milestone, which, needless to say, is an impressive feat. And, though a little less glorious, Ortiz also happened to join the 1000-walk club today (a group that’s essentially half as exclusive), with a sixth inning walk against Griffin.
