[1]BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz, the face of the Red Sox since helping Boston end an 86-year World Series drought in 2004, has finalized a $26 million, two-year contract.

The soon-to-be 37-year old Ortiz attended a Fenway Park news conference Monday to announce the agreement, which includes bonuses that could raise the value to $30 million.

Big Papi had consecutive game-ending hits in extra innings of Games 4 and 5 of the 2004 AL championship series against the Yankees as the Red Sox became the first major league team to overcome a 0-3 deficit in a best-of-seven postseason series.

The eight-time All-Star has hit 343 homers for Boston, fifth on the team’s career list, and has 1,088 RBIs.
