Foxwoods Resort Casino has secured an exclusive partnership with Red Sox legend and Fox Sports analyst David Ortiz. The 10-time All Star, seven-time Silver Slugger and three-time World Champion will join the property’s roster as a designated ambassador.
In addition to appearing in upcoming marketing campaigns, the baseball icon will lend support to other exclusive initiatives on property, including gaming tournaments and other hosted events.
“We are so thrilled to welcome David Ortiz to the Foxwoods team, solidifying a unique partnership between two New England institutions,” said Interim CEO & Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Council Chairman Rodney Butler. “Big Papi knows a thing or two about hitting it big, and we’ve hit the jackpot in adding him to our line-up to engage with guests and elevate the Foxwoods brand in his new role with the organization.”
Ortiz commented on his new role, saying: “I’ve had such great experiences coming to Foxwoods over the years, so this partnership is a really exciting opportunity for me to show why it’s the premier resort destination in the Northeast. We’re going to have a lot of fun together, and I look forward to sharing the Wonder Of It All with my fans!”
