2013 will mark the third year that the Boston Red Sox have been in the World Series since David Ortiz became a member of the team. For Ortiz, his third time around isn’t anything different from the first one. According to ESPN,

“It never gets old, man,” he said. “I’ve been blessed because this is my third one, but it never gets old. You always want to be here. You always want to be a winner. It’s an honor for me to be back with the same organization. It’s something that doesn’t happen to too many of us.”

Although, he couldn’t be more excited to be playing in the World Series with the Red Sox, even though they’re a different team from the previous champions. He’s okay with the changes of players, whether it’s the love for the game, or something completely different.

“In ’04 we had a lot of guys that knew the game, a lot of talent,” Ortiz said. “Right now we probably don’t have as much talent, but we have guys with big hearts, guys that want to play and make things happen.”

The Boston Red Sox will begin their quest for another World Series title when they take on the St. Louis Cardinals for Game 1 in Boston on Wednesday night.
