In the 4th game of the 2004 American League Championship Series, David Ortiz - "The Big Papi" - stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 12th inning and with one swing began a comeback that would erase the "Curse of the Bambino" and lead the Red Sox to four consecutive historic victories over the New York Yankees.
Papi Pops The Yanks is a 26" X 21" limited edition lithograph by famed sports artist Bill Purdom. It captures the precise moment at 1:22 a.m. on October 18, 2004 that Ortiz drove a 2-1 pitch from Paul Quantrill into the right field bullpen at Fenway Park. "Ortiz is just a great hitter and he beat me," Quantrill said afterwards.
This moment turned around the famed Red Sox-Yankees rivalry and ultimately was responsible for Boston's first World Series title in 86 years.
