It’s been a long run for David Ortiz.
The Boston Red Sox legend made his much-anticipated return to Fenway park on Monday just ahead of the team’s game against the New York Yankees.
His return comes months after he was senselessly shot in the back in his native Dominican Republic.
After spending some time at a Boston area hospital, Ortiz headed back to Boston to throw out the first pitch tonight.
Big Papi is at Fenway to throw tonight’s first pitch ?
What an ovation
