MLB unveiled two special new spots dedicated to honoring Boston Red Sox superstar David Ortiz as he closes the curtain on his final regular season as a Major League player.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker and actor Ben Affleck lends his voice to the "Thanks Big Papi" spot that highlights some of Ortiz's most memorable moments on and off the field. Cy Young Award-winner and former teammate Pedro Martínez says gracias to Ortiz in the Spanish version of the salute. The spots feature "I Will Never Let You Down" by pop star Rita Ora.
