The New York Yankees announced Thursday they will honor retiring Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz before his final game in the Bronx.

First reported by David Lennon of Newsday, the New York Yankees announce they will honor David Ortiz, who is retiring at the end of the season, with a pregame ceremony in the Bronx on September 29.

Almost all Yankees fans are sickened by the announcement and feel that in no way should Ortiz be celebrated by the organization after his questionable past. Fans have even gone to the measures of starting a movement to moon Ortiz in his final game in New York.

The Red Sox gave Derek Jeter a very nice ceremony before his retirement so; it was expected that the Yankees would give one to Ortiz.

We don’t know yet what to expect during the celebration. The history of the Yankees organization suggests fans will be objected to a proper ceremony.

Stay tuned for more details.
