Boston Red Sox Star David Ortiz Tests Positive for Banned Substances

One of the best-known current Major League Baseball stars in the US, David Ortiz, has admitted testing postiive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Ortiz only found out about his 2003 positive test last Thursday and said in reaction to the discovery: “Based on the way I have lived my life, I am surprised - I will find out what I tested positive for. Whatever I learn, I will share this information with the public."

The Boston Red Sox player, nicknamed ‘Big Papi’ moved to Boston in 2003 having cut his teeth at the Minnesota Twins. A year after his move to the Red Sox, Ortiz helped them win their first World Series in 86 years. Despite a stretch in which he struggled with injuries, Ortiz helped Boston win another World Series in 2007.

According to the New York Times, Ortiz’ former Red Sox team-mate Manny Ramirez, who served a 50-game ban earlier this season for banned substances, also tested positive back in 2003. Now an LA Dodgers player, Ramirez said he wouldn’t discuss “something (that) happened six years ago.”
