BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 10: David Ortiz #34 of the Boston Red Sox tips his cap after the Cleveland Indians defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-3 in game three of the American League Divison Series to advance to the American League Championship Series at Fenway Park on October 10, 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts.

No one else will wear Big Papi’s number 34 on the back of a Red Sox uniform!

I STILL can’t believe that David Ortiz is retired, never mind that they are retiring his number tonight!  The Red Sox have been using the hashtag “#34ever” to mark this day.  Big Papi’s number will be officially retired by the Red Sox tonight at Fenway Park during a pre-game ceremony.  I’m sure there won’t be a dry eye in the park!

The last man to wear 34 on the back of a Red Sox jersey.
