Topps Now May 8, 2016

The next Topps Now card features David Ortiz and Carl Yastrzemski.  On May 8, Ortiz hit two home runs, the first to tie Carl Yastrzemski's Red Sox home run mark, and the next one passed him.  Ortiz is now #2 on the Red Sox all-time home run record.  If Ortiz does indeed retire this year, he will not have a chance to break Williams's mark.  As of today, Ortiz has hit 456 home runs with the Red Sox.  Williams hit 521.  So Ortiz is still quite a way off from the all-time team record.
