Big Papi receives Clemente Award


ST. LOUIS -- David Ortiz is a seven-time All-Star with two world championship rings, 378 home runs and an ebullient persona known all around Major League Baseball.
Now Big Papi has something else to add to his legacy. He is the 2011 winner of the Roberto Clemente Award presented by Chevrolet.
The third nomination was the charm for the Red Sox designated hitter, who was presented the sport's highest honor for community service in a ceremony before Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday at Busch Stadium. Ortiz follows 2010 winner Tim Wakefield, the first club repeat since Seattle's Jamie Moyer and Edgar Martinez won in 2003 and 2004, respectively.
