SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Dominican slugger David Ortiz says he hopes to renew his contract with the Boston Red Sox for another year.

The 38-year-old told a news conference Wednesday in the Dominican Republic that he will keep playing as long as he feels physically health.

Ortiz won the World Series MVP award last month after reaching base in 11 of 16 at bats with two homeruns and six runs batted in.

He had a .309 batting average with 30 homeruns, 70 extra base hits and 103 runs batted in during 137 games this past season.
