We know one Yankee that supports David Ortiz.
Yankee Candle announced this week that it would be selling a special “Big Papi’s Retirement Party” candle to celebrate Ortiz’s illustrious major league career. The Boston Red Sox slugger is retiring after this season, and everyone has been rolling out the red carpet as part of a memorable farewell tour.
The limited edition candle was sold out as of Thursday afternoon. It retailed for $27.99, but $20 from the sale of each one went to the David Ortiz Children’s Fund.
Fans who weren’t able to purchase a candle, which features the company’s “MidSummer’s Night” fragrance, can enter for a chance to win an autographed version by clicking here.
