David Ortiz is officially a Hall of Famer.
Over the weekend, Cooperstown opened its doors to the class of 2022, headlined by the legendary Red Sox slugger. Of course, Big Papi is a legendary orator as well, and his induction speech was the highlight for many of the fans in attendance and watching at home. A story about his time with Boston early on put Ortiz’s career in the proper context. “When I first came to Boston, I had a manager named Grady Little. My very first at-bat against the Twins in spring training, I tried to move a runner over. I thought when I got back to the dugout, everybody was gonna high-five me. Everybody stayed sitting. The manager pulled me to the side and told me, ‘Hey, big boy, I don’t want you to be here to move them over. I want you to be here to bring them in.’ The rest is history.”
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Based on the team cap that they are wearing on their plaques, can you name the last player from every current MLB team to make it into Cooperstown?
