Ortiz was often parodied on "Saturday Night Live" by cast member Kenan Thompson.
Ortiz held the single season home run record for the Boston Red Sox after hitting 54 dingers in the 2006 season.
On his fortieth birthday in November of 2015, Ortiz announced that he would retire from baseball at the end of the 2016 season.
Ortiz is best known for pointing his fingers to the sky after hitting a home run. He does this to pay tribute to his deceased mother, who died in a car crash shortly before he joined the Red Sox.
