Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz is set to retire after this season, so it won’t be a big surprise to see all the tributes and dedications rolling out. Just last night, rival team, New York Yankees honored the DH/first baseman with a pre-game ceremony where he was given a leather-bound book of farewells and a painting. The Bombers even played the popular Boston team song, “Sweet Caroline” over the PA just for him.
However, it’s the Boston Red Sox’s tribute that takes the cake. To honor one of its greatest baseball players in team history, the Red Sox mowed the image of ‘Big Papi’ doing his signature point to the sky move into Fenway Park’s outfield. A better view of the design can be seen from the sky. All in all, David Ortiz will surely be missed in the game of baseball, not just by Sox fans, but by those who keep a close eye to the sport.
