David Ortiz Visits Fenway For 1st Time Since Shooting, Throwing Out First Pitch!!!

4:13 PM PT — Naturally, Fenway Park went absolutely bonkers when Ortiz threw the first pitch to his old teammate, Jason Varitek.

Ortiz also briefly addressed the crowd before the game … thanking everyone for his support during his recovery.


David Ortiz is making his first appearance at Fenway Park since he was nearly killed in the Dominican Republic last June … and Sox officials say he’s going to throw out the first pitch!!!

Ortiz almost lost his life after a gunman fired a bullet into his lower back outside of a D.R. club on June 9 … but after several surgeries — Ortiz says he’s been feeling MUCH better.

So much so, the guy decided to hit up the Red Sox game Monday night to give his former squad a little bit of a boost heading into a rivalry game with the Yankees — and fans are fired up!!!

Unclear if Papi will take the mound for the first pitch or just throw the heat from the infield grass … but either way, it’ll be welcome sight for EVERYBODY in the baseball world!!!

By the way, the Yankees have paid their own tribute to the Sox legend recently … superstars Edwin Encarnacion and Gary Sanchez went to visit him before they started the series last week.

Props for the cool move!!!
