Watch the Boston Red Sox retire David Ortiz’s number

The Boston Red Sox retired David Ortiz’s number 34 at a ceremony prior to its game against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday.

Ortiz, who hung up his cleats last year, was welcomed onto the Fenway Park field with a huge ovation.

Red Sox Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski, Pedro Martinez, Wade Boggs and Jim Rice joined Ortiz at the ceremony.

Papi got emotional while he addressed the crowd, saying he was “extremely honored” to be included in such a select group:

And everyone watched as the Red Sox unveiled Big Papi’s No. 34 up on the Fenway facade.

Big Papi’s No. 34 was the 10th Red Sox number to be retired (the 11th if you include Jackie Robinson). Just a day earlier, Boston renamed a street near Fenway Park David Ortiz Drive.

“This city means a lot to me,” Ortiz said on Thursday. “This city got me to where I am today.”

Ortiz, who called it a career last year at the age of 40, spent 14 seasons with the Boston Red Sox, where he was a 10-time All Star and won three World Series championships.
