Ortiz, with new contract, is ‘celebrating a good thing’
The Red Sox officially announced the signing of designated hitter David Ortiz to a two-year contract on Monday. “It’s an honor for me to be back,” Ortiz said. Ortiz and the Red Sox agreed to a new contract on Friday, just hours before he could have shopped his services on the free agent market to any team. Instead Ortiz, who will turn 37 on Nov. 18, will stay in Boston on a two-year deal worth $26 million.
