[Big Papi] Ortiz steals the show in Damon's return to Boston
Tuesday, May 2, 2006
Johnny Damon stepped to the plate to lead off the game and was booed for 30 seconds by the crowd at Fenway Park.
Somewhere in there, though, were just enough cheers to make him raise his new Yankees helmet.
"I planned on doing it if I heard enough cheering, and I did," Damon said.
But the Red Sox fans saved their loudest cheers for David Ortiz, who hit a three-run homer into a strong wind, giving the Red Sox a 7-3 win over the Yankees on Monday night and spoiling Damon's return.
