David Ortiz Praises Boston, Thanks City and Its Heroes in Return to Fenway Park (Video)

1,667

David Ortiz picked the perfect time to return to Boston.

Big Papi was back in town Saturday after working his way back from complications from last season’s Achilles’ injury, and he and the rest of his Red Sox teammates made it a special afternoon at Fenway Park. Ortiz greeted the crowd and pumped up the city (with some questionable language) before first pitch, thanking Boston’s leaders and the many heroes from this week.

Check it out in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
