Big Papi’s speech was one of the best and most succinct player speeches I’ve ever seen. The ceremony celebrated the heroes, remembered the fallen and highlighted the unity of not just the people of Boston, but the entire country. Well done and the Red Sox even won the game on an emotional 3-run HR reminiscent of Piazza’s 2-run HR in the first game at Shea after 9/11. With everything that Boston went through during the past week, that was a much needed and well deserved celebratory afternoon.
