For fourteen glorious years, Red Sox nation has had the honor and privilege of having David Ortiz, aka “Big Papi”, on our team. Since his retirement last year, Red Sox fans and the people of Massachusetts have been feeling at a loss. If there is one thing that Red Sox nation will never lose though, it’s heart.
No matter what, fans and players will always be the first ones up to the plate and loudest in the stands to prove nothing can make us back down. For this week’s #AskBoston, we hit Yawkey Way outside of Fenway Park for opening day. We asked what the fans thought about starting this new season off without Big Papi.
