On January 22, 2003, the Boston Red Sox make one of the best free agent signings in their history, nabbing David Ortiz. Ortiz, who never really had a chance to play regularly in Minnesota, will blossom in Boston, clubbing 31 homers in 2003, and following it with 41 and 47 in his next two seasons. His clutch hits will become legendary among "Fenway Faithful."
