BOSTON — David Ortiz got to try on some new chains thanks to Aly Raisman,

The U.S. Olympic gymnast and Needham, Mass., native threw out the first pitch Friday at Fenway Park ahead of the Red Sox’s game against the Kansas City Royals, and she needed somewhere to hang her medals. Luckily, Ortiz was nearby and more than happy to do the job.

Raisman won two silver medals at the Rio Olympics for the women’s individual all-around and floor and a gold in the team all-around. She also has two golds and a bronze from the London Games in 2012.
