ADVANCE FOR SATURDAY, OCT. 1 - In this Oct. 30, 2007, file photo, Boston Red Sox fans hold up letters that spell out "ORTIZ" for Red Sox player David Ortiz as they celebrate in Boston's Copley Square, during a rolling rally to celebrate the Red Sox baseball World Series victory against the Colorado Rockies. The Mariners traded him. The Twins released him. And even the Boston fans gave up on David Ortiz a couple of times, too, after he struggled to start the spring or limped away before the season was over. But when this Red Sox season is over and Ortiz's career ends along with it, it will be by his choice and playing as well as he ever has. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola, File)
