Big Papi Says Goodbye To Fenway Faithful After Red Sox Elimination – VIDEO
Watch below, as Big Papi", David Ortiz, said goodbye to Boston and Fenway Park, following the Red Sox' 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
With the win, the Indians completed a three-game sweep in the best-of-five game American League Division Series, sending them to the American Championship Series, while ending the 20-year career of Ortiz, who announced before the start of the season that he would retire after it's completion.
Ortiz, who spent the last 14 years of his career, after playing the first six with the Minnesota Twins, compiled a .286 batting average, to go along with 541 home runs and 1,768 runs batted in.
It's sad to see the end of a great career, but also great to see an athlete have this type of love affair with a city and it's fans.
Ortiz, who along with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, have been the faces of professional sports in Boston over the past decade, was a 10-time All-Star, and will likely be inducted in the Hall of Fame one day.
