LOOK: Here's the cover for David Ortiz's May 16 'Papi' book release
The title is short, simple and effective
Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz retired last summer, but his legions of fans wonât have to wait long to relive his career, as his book âPapiâ will be released May 16.
Thanks to Big Papi himself, letâs get a look at the headline and cover:
I like it. Just simple and to the point. Thereâs no reason to splash a 24-word headline over the entire cover here.
Of course, I wouldnât have argued with a reference to his âThis is our f------ cityâ moment. Something like âThis Was My F------ Careerâ would have been a pretty cool title, and if they censored it like that, the bookstores would surely have been fine with it.
So weâre good with âPapi.â
The link Ortiz included in his tweet sends you to a landing page with links to eight different online places to pre-order the book. It also gives us the following teaser:
An entertaining, unfiltered memoir by one of the gameâs greatest, most clutch sluggers.
âUnfilteredâ always sounds fun.
So get excited, Papi fans. The first pitch is May 16.
