Without question, David Ortiz showed his prowess for heroics on Sunday night.

A game-tying, two-out, bottom of the eighth grand slam in the postseason? It doesn't get much more heroic than that.

But two players does not a baseball team make and there are at least four more games coming in the ALCS. That's at least four more opportunities for other heroes to emerge.

We all know Big Papi is good for a clutch moment, but as the team heads to Detroit for games three and four, we want to know this:

Game 3 of the ALCS takes place Tuesday in Detroit. First pitch is set for 4:07 p.m. and the game will be televised on Fox.
