We’re going to end up writing a whole lot about David Ortiz and what he meant to the Red Sox now that his career and their season are both over. For now, though, let’s just let the emotion of the moment wash over us, as it did for Big Papi when he took the field again in front of a stadium still full of adoring Fenway Faithful following Boston’s ALDS loss to the Indians.
Yeah, Ortiz is crying, and you probably are, too. And that’s good. This is an emotional time, and you’re in touch with your emotions, and don’t let anyone tell you that you or Ortiz are wrong for it.
