Baseball Over Everything

Ortiz played baseball at Estudia Espallat High School and at six-feet tall he had the stature, strength and physical ability to not only stand out on baseball field but on the basketball court as well. Ortiz gravitated toward his first love of baseball, eventually grabbing the attention of scouts.
