Roberto Clemente Award

WAS PULLING for Ricky Romero, but congrats to division foe David Ortiz for winning the Roberto Clemente Award today. Big Papi will receive his award before Game 2 of the World Series at Busch Stadium.

About the Roberto Clemente Award, presented by Chevrolet: It recognizes players who best represent the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement. The award pays tribute to Clemente's achievements and character by recognizing current players who truly understand the value of helping others.

Ortiz has long been committed to helping children in need of medical care through hospital visits, fundraisers and personal donations.
