On November 11, 2017, the Springfield Thunderbirds proudly welcomed "Big Papi" David Ortiz to the City of Homes for a special night centered around his illustrious career and memories he created for the people of Western Massachusetts. 

In true Big Papi fashion, the Thunderbirds honored Ortiz on the ice by overcoming a 3-0 deficit after one period to storm back for a 6-4 win over the Laval Rocket.

Thank you, Thunderbirds fans, for making David Ortiz Night an unforgettable night! Relive the unforgettable night below:
