NY Post: David Ortiz Makes A Final Plea to Yankees Fans

David Ortiz watched the Red Sox honor Mariano Rivera on his last trip to Fenway Park. He was there to see Derek Jeter make his final appearance in Boston.

The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is the best, the most emotional, the biggest of them all.

The 2016 season is Ortiz’s final lap as a player. He knows the drill. He doesn’t want treasure. He doesn’t need another painting. Save the rocking chair for someone else.

When Ortiz, 40, makes his final Yankee Stadium appearance on Sept. 29, this is what he wants, and it speaks volumes about Ortiz the player, the competitor, the enemy, the star.

“You know what I want most of all?’’ Big Papi told The Post on Tuesday at JetBlue Park. “I would love it if the fans at Yankee Stadium gave me a standing ovation.’’

It only seems fair after we gave one to Jetes and Mo.
