MASHANTUCKET, CT (January 19, 2019) – Foxwoods Resort Casino, voted the Best Casino Outside Las Vegas by a USA Today readers’ poll, has scored big once again by announcing an exclusive partnership with Red Sox legend and Fox Sports analyst David Ortiz.
A 10-time All Star, 7-time Silver Slugger and 3-time World Champion, Ortiz is stepping up to the plate in a new role with Foxwoods, where he’ll 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 Foxwoods’ 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 lineup to engage with guests and elevate the Foxwoods brand in his new role with the organization.”
“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,” said Ortiz. “We’re going to have a lot of fun together, and I look forward to sharing the Wonder Of It All with my fans!”
The announcement was made via a special public presentation at Foxwoods today ahead of the property’s 5th Annual Baseball Winter Weekend, an exclusive fan-fest featuring the 2019 Boston Red Sox. For more information, visit foxwoods.com.
