I'd like to see the "Trademark fight with Jay-Z" paragraph replaced with this:[edit]

In April 2010, rapper and producer Jay-Z and his business partner Juan Perez initiated a trademark infringement case against Big Papi's night club, Forty-Forty, located in his native Dominican Republic. The suit claimed that Big Papi's night club name was chosen to take advantage of the fame of the record producers chain of sports clubs named, "The 40/40 Club". The term 40/40 in baseball refers to ballplayers in the Major Leagues who have both 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a single season. There are presently only four players who have accomplished that feat, and Ortiz is not one of them.[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 7theguy7 (talkcontribs) 20:44, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 11 July 2013[edit]

On July 10th, 2013, David Ortiz took sole possesion of the record of hits by a Designated Hitter with 1989. 65.197.19.241 (talk) 02:33, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Done, though in the future please remember to provide a reliable source when making an edit request (though it was easy to find one myself in this case). BryanG (talk) 03:46, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Home Run Derby Victory[edit]

Should his 2010 Home Run Derby title be listed in his awards box? The Home Run Derby is linked with the All Star Game and considering Ortiz's All Star Game selections are listed, it would make sense to include his derby win. Mike (talk) 18:24, 14 July 2013 (UTC) I love it!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.97.227.241 (talk) 22:15, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

False information regarding current world series results.[edit]

The 2013 section of this article suggests that the Red Sox have won the World Series in 6 games, and attributes a quote to Ortiz. Clearly, as of today, that hasn't happened yet! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.29.131.96 (talk) 00:37, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

You will be able to make edits yourself to this semi-protected article once your user account has autoconfirmed status. Normally this means the account is more than four days old and has made at least 10 edits (to other pages, obviously). Alternatively, you may leave another request on this page, but you will need to be very specific about what needs to be changed, and provide reliable sources for the changes. Thanks for your interest. – Wdchk (talk) 02:41, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
