A moving pregame ceremony at Fenway Park honored the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Leave it to Big Papi to clear the air. David Ortiz’ expletive-deleted message to the city before Saturday’s Red Sox game was pure emotion.
“All right, Boston,” said Ortiz, the Red Sox’ franchise icon. “This jersey that we wear today, it doesn’t say Red Sox. It says Boston. We want to thank you, Mayor Menino, Governor Patrick, the whole police department for the great job they did this past week. This is our (expletive) city, and nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong.”
A moving pregame ceremony at Fenway Park honored the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, gave thanks to the police and first responders who reacted to Monday’s horror and the ensuing manhunt for the perpetrators, and reaffirmed the city’s resolve to overcome.
