The Red Sox welcome David Ortiz back to Fenway Park for the first time since his Hall of Fame induction
David Ortiz returned to Fenway Park a new man.
For the first time, he came home as a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, his visage immortalized in bronze and enshrined with the greatest to ever play the game.
Of course, Boston had to have its own celebration for the greatest clutch hitter of all time. So, on Tuesday, flanked by the three trophies he delivered, his family, former teammates, Red Sox legends who came before him, and thousands of fans, Ortiz soaked in the moment.
Here are the best moments from the evening’s festivities:

The Red Sox opened the ceremonies by unfurling the three banners Ortiz’s bat brought to Boston.
Too bad they won’t be adding a 2022 banner to the collection.
